Turtles are an important part of wetland ecosystems but are threatened by human activity. This program provides an in-depth exploration of Ontario’s turtle species and how we can work to protect them.
Turtle Crossing focuses on Hamilton Harbour as turtle habitat, the characteristics of Ontario turtles, the threats to turtles, and more!
Students participate in an interactive presentation and make their own take-home turtle using air-dry modeling clay.
Please note: There are no live animals in this presentation. BARC uses artificial model turtles for education.
