Become a Turtle Guardian and help protect species and spaces!
Want to learn about turtles and help our shelled friends too?
Turtles are keystone species. Turtles and turtle habitats are extremely important in keeping humans healthy: Turtles eat dead matter at the bottom of lakes and wetlands, helping to keep our water clean; they spread seeds that grow into plants that support fish and other aquatic life, and which filter water, and they cycle nutrients!
Turtles live in wetlands which are important habitats used by over 70% of Ontario's wildlife - from moose to fish - and wetlands regulate water levels and filter pollutants.
Turtle Guardians are at the forefront of stewarding these valuable assets in Ontario.
