2020 is the year of the rainbow turtle!
Spread hope and kindness in the world -to save humankind and our living planet too!
We are so proud to support the rainbows-in-windows initiative around the world in response to COVID-19, and to spread kindness and hope for humankind and our living planet too!
This year we are asking people to make turtley cool rainbow signs for your yard, windows, or mailboxes- and to wear a turtley cool rainbow or terrapin costume. If you are near areas where turtles are crossing roads, stand on your lawn, balcony, or doorway to let drivers know you care – between June 8 and 13th.
Take pictures of your initiative and share with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or email us to share these with the world.
Turtles live a long time, but, it takes about 60 years for one snapping turtle to replace itself.
Turtles are the best cleaners of our lakes and water! Without them in lakes, all wildlife would suffer. Turtles also spread aquatic seeds that grow into amazing habitats for fish, frogs, birds and more. But…Turtles are the most endangered animals in the world. Turtle Walks/Dwelling events are held during the Strawberry Moon, the full moon at the start of June. This is the most active time for turtle nesting and when turtles are near roads!
- Donations are in support of the T-5 Campaign (Turtles, Teaching, Tracking, Tunnels and Trauma care). Our 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.
