#TurtleCast – Helping Terrestrial Turtles in the Spring

Posted on Posted in Adventures, Sea Turtles

This #TurtleCast video describes how to handle terrestrial turtles and what to do if you see one crossing the road.

Rule #1
Move a turtle that's crossing the road to the side it is facing. Don't take turtles home with you!

Rule #2
Don't pick up a turtle by its tail or you may break its spine! Pick up turtles by their turtle handles.

#TurtleCast featuring sea turtles begins in two short weeks. Don't forget to follow me on Snapchat @sweaverflies to see some awesome snaps about sea turtles and learn more about what I do as a sea turtle conservationist.
