Freshwater Turtles (30 seconds)


Don’t let the word water fool you. Even
though freshwater turtles rely on wetlands, streams, lakes and rivers to
survive, the rely land as well. In fact these long living reptiles
begin their life on land where the Sun incubates they buried eggs. Sadly motor vehicle collisions, habitat
loss and climate change threaten nearly all eight species. You can help by
watching for them on the road and by conserving their habitat. And
that’s just to start! To learn more about freshwater turtles
