Bet you didn't know that this coming Tuesday, 23 May 2017 is World Turtle Day.
Well, the more you know.
American Tortoise Rescue, a nonprofit organization established in 1990 for the protection of all species of tortoise and turtles, and this day was created as an annual observance to help people celebrate and protect turtles and tortoises and their disappearing habitats around the world.
Although you and I may be just one person, we can all contribute to help save these beautiful creatures!
- Don't purchase a turtle or tortoise from a pet shop, this increases demand from the wild.
- Do not remove turtles or tortoises from the wild unless they are sick or injured.
- Report the illegal sales or trade of turtles and tortoises to your local animal control shelter.
- If a tortoise is crossing a street, pick it up and send it in the same direction it was going – if you try to make it go back, it will turn right around again.
Not all turtle species can hide their heads inside their shells!
So to commemorate this day, I have created a turtle wallpaper for all of you. Hopefully the illustrated turtle reminds you of a certain cartoon.
