Happy World Turtle Day!
Today is World Turtle Day, started in 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue, itself founded as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation in 1990.
Celebrations occur worldwide — people dressing up as turtles or wearing “turtle green” clothes, research activities, arts & crafts projects, and even specific turtle lesson plans in classrooms.
Did you know that if you find a turtle crossing a road and decide to help it so it doesn’t get hit by a car, you should point it in the same direction it was traveling, so take it to the side of the road that it was traveling to and point it away from the road. If you take it to the side of the road from which it came, even if you point it away from the road then, it will turn around and start to cross the road again.
And what do I do for World Turtle Day? Why post a bunch of turtle pictures, of course!
