Tour of the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre (OTCC): Hosted by the Quinte Chapter
OTCC's mission is to Protect and Conserve Ontario’s Native Turtles and their Habitat.
We accomplish this by operating a turtle hospital that treats, rehabilitates, and releases injured turtles, by performing extensive research in the field to further conservation initiatives, and by running a comprehensive education and outreach program.
As an organization, we strive to increase awareness of the challenges facing Ontario’s turtles and to inspire individuals to act to help. We’re big believers that every person truly can make a difference! Read more: https://ontarioturtle.ca/.
Did you know that turtles have been around virtually unchanged for 220 million years?
Did you know that turtles use aquatic and terrestrial habitats during their life cycles, so the effects of climate change are having a large impact on them?
Did you know that Ontario turtle hatchlings emerge from their nests in late summer through September with some hatching as late as October?
Did you know that the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre (OTCC) in Peterborough is a registered charity whose goal is to protect and conserve Ontario’s native turtles, and operates a turtle hospital that treats, rehabilitates, and releases injured turtles?
