Happy World Turtle Day!

It's World Turtle Day so we spent some extra time learning about turtles today. Here are some cool turtle facts:

  • Turtles have been on the Earth from more than 200 million years. They evolved before mammals, birds, crocodiles, snakes, and lizards!
  • Several species of turtles can live to be well over 100.
  • Turtles live on every content except Antarctica, this means there are turtles that are native to the US and even more locally, Ohio.
  • Turtles need YOUR help in order to thrive. Reduce, reuse, recycle, and conserve in order to keep turtle habitats clean.
