  • Finally, Our New Name!

    The Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre is pleased to announce that we are (finally!) going to be implementing the operating name of "Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre". While our legal name will still be Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre, we will be using the new operating name more and more. Thanks to your feedback, we feel it better represents the comprehensive and widespread conservation work we do. We truly appreciate your support!
