  • Spring is Coming in Like a Turtle-a huge success!

    The Spring is Coming in Like a Turtle ROM event was a great success! On April 9th, guests joined the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre at the ROM for a chance to meet and mingle with our world class turtle veterinarian and biologists. They heard firsthand accounts of our turtle conservation efforts, bid on amazing auctions items and listened to esteemed conservationist, author, and self-professed turtle lover, Monte Hummel share his experiences. Thank you to everyone who attended this event for your continued generosity and support!
