The work of volunteers and staff at the KTTC help protect and preserve Ontario's biodiversity. General Manager Lindsay Maxim talked with CBC's Fresh Air about the work the centre does, the dangers turtles face, and what to do if you see one crossing the road. Find out more about what to do if you ever come across one of Ontario's oldest residents in need of aid.
Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre is a registered charity whose goal is to aid in the conservation of Ontario’s native turtles and the habitat in which they live. We accomplish this by operating a turtle hospital that treats, rehabilitates and releases injured turtles, by performing extensive research in the field to further conservation initiatives, and by running a comprehensive education and outreach program.
