Turtles are the best cleaners of our lakes and water! Turtle populations are declining dramatically: Turtles live a long time, but, it takes about 60 years for one snapping turtle to replace itself. Road mortality, poaching and habitat loss are making things worse for turtles.
Live turtles, face-painting and crafts at most Turtle Walks. Prizes for the best costumes, signs, for answering skill-testing questions during the walk, and for the best fundraisers
Donations are in support of the T-5 Campaign (Turtles, Teaching, Tracking, Tunnels and Trauma care). Goal is to raise $100,000 each year to support the recovery of turtle populations in Ontario, from start to finish: from prevention to cure.
