With water surrounding the area, it’s important to watch out for turtles if you’re driving. Executive Director of the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre, Sue Carstairs says turtle species are at risk as they have a very slim chance of surviving into adulthood.

Carstairs says their biggest threat is habitat loss, their 2nd biggest is being killed on roads. She says it’s easy to mistake a turtle for something else.

If you see an injured turtle, report it to the centre, for more information visit the centre’s website.
