Yahoooooooooooooo! It’s World Turtle Day!

Did you know?

Another World Turtle Day is here!

Started in 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue, celebrations occur worldwide with people dressing up as turtles or wearing “turtle green” clothes, arts & crafts projects, research activities, 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, it will turn around and start to cross the road again.

And for your World Turtle Day enjoyment:

    Oh, this makes me happy (turtle day!!!!) And terribly sad: a tinglar (thats am endangered specie of turtle, I can’t link up a wiki page in this mobile 😦 ) killing was reported yesterday in a beach here in Puerto Rico. The photos are disturbing as it was killed with hits to it’s head, and everyone is just so indignated. We are hoping the killer gets caught.
