World Turtle News, 05/03/2015
Education, Education, Education
In contrast to last weekends news articles which featured heavily about poaching, this weekend we have stories about education. As tortoise and turtles become more active in the North America so do the education talks and walks. So if you have one nearby why not pop along. In other news we have an update on the Bellinger River turtles, firefighters wrangling a snapper from a culvert and a Leatherback sea turtle rescue.
