May 23 was World Turtle Day.
“This is a busy time of year for many turtles who are traveling to lay eggs. Be on the lookout for turtles crossing roads and, if you can do so safely, lend them a helping hand by carrying them to the side of the road they are traveling towards.If your backyard habitat includes a pond that supports turtles, make sure you provide perches. Leave wild turtles where you find them, and never release a pet turtle into the wild. Volunteering for local river cleanups and refraining from littering are all ways we can help provide healthy habitat for turtles.”The above quote was taken from: Yardmap Facebook page
