I’m glad I work at a place that understands that I’m running late because I had to turn around to help this cute box turtle cross the road. 😊🐢🐢🐢 #cute #Help #turtle  #nature #Easternboxturtle



We are glad too, and glad that you cared enough to help!! View Larger

Using Turtle Dogs to Study Wildlife Diseases →

Currently, the population of Eastern Box Turtles is being threatened by something potentially more dangerous than wild collection, vehicle collision, and habitat destruction. It’s name is Ranavirus and it is a disease being spread through the wild reptile world. This study will fund the training of turtle dogs to find box turtles, so that their trainers can test them and better be able to understand the virus to hopefully put a stop to it. So go ahead, click the link! Donate if you can and definitely share. There is also a cute video demonstration of the turtle dogs on the project funding page.
