This year is the year of the Rainbow Turtle- a symbol of hope paying homage to the Rainbows in Windows campaign started by children around the world, and a symbol of tolerance.
Turtles still need our help! This year, like many years, we have witnessed that almost half of the turtles we have seen while conducting our road research with over 30 staff, are dead on roads! Help our slow friends come and first and raise awareness about the plight of our oldest relatives.
Register as a turtle walk team (or individual) and receive your turtle walk 2020 stickers and certificates. Take pictures of your walk and send them in so we can share them with the world!
As always, you can make your own turtle-y cool awareness signs, and dawn your turtle-y cool costumes – Win prizes for best of both!
Also you can raise pledges and request a turtle walk kit- or purchase one online- proceeds go to saving turtles. This year we are raising funds to install two turtle tunnels (specialized fencing to direct turtles safely through culverts and and under roads) at chosen sites in the Highlands.
- 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.
