However, 75% of the world's turtles and tortoises are at risk of becoming extinct.

Our Impact, By The Numbers
At Turtle Guardians, we provide education, conduct research, rescue adult turtles on roads, and implement road mitigation solutions to reduce turtle mortality. We also rescue, incubate and release turtle hatchlings from nests in jeopardy under special permits. This practice, also known as "headstarting", increases their odds of survival and helps bolster turtle populations.
Note: All research including turtle measurements, incubation and releases, and tunnel system installations are done under wildlife permits and with authorizations.
In the Name of Grace- Saving Sacred Spaces
We have turtley cool school curriculums for kids and teachers
