Keeping turtles safe in Ontario

One of my passions is how to keep Ontario's turtle population from being killed on the roads. Southwestern Ontario is prime turtle habitat. The only problem is that we humans have drained the wetlands, or put roads through almost all of it. Turtles are forced to traverse roads to get to nesting, breeding, feeding, and overwintering places. And they don't stand a chance on the road. They can't move quickly enough to get out of the way.

But, solutions do exist. We can do much more to save them. This blog post from Turtles Kingston discusses road mitigation, or how to protect turtles from cars.
