Turtle conservation seminar coming to Trenton

By Olivia Timm [1] and Lindsey Cooke [2]

BELLEVILLE – Did you know that seven out of eight Ontario turtles species are on the endangered list as at risk?

Representatives from the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre [3] in Peterborough will be speaking at the Hillcrest Animal Hospital [4] in Trenton on Tuesday evening at 5:30 p.m.

The free seminar will educate the public on how to help endangered turtles, and there will be some live turtles for everyone to see. 

The centre is a registered charity that protects and conserves Ontario’s native turtles and their habitat.

It operates a turtle hospital that treats, rehabilitates and releases injured turtles. 

QNet News will have more about what you can do to help Ontario’s turtles.
