Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre
Helping turtles in trouble.
Seven of the eight turtle species in Ontario are classified as "at risk." Most turtle populations are declining. The Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre helps save Ontario's native turtles.
Globally turtles and tortoises are facing challenges from illegal collection for food and pet trades, habitat loss, increased predation, pollution, and growing networks of roads.
Since June of 2002 the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre has been saving injured native turtles and releasing them back into their natural habitat. The Centre is located in Peterborough, Ontario, and is a registered Canadian Charity.
Seeing a turtle basking on a log has always been a pleasant part of visiting Ontario wetlands. These species, something we once took for granted, are in trouble and need our help.
