Reporting Intentional Harm to Turtles
If you see someone intentionally harming a turtle, please follow the decision tree to the right.
It takes a single turtle 60 years to replace itself, so it is of the utmost importance that we do our best to protect each one!
Please drive cautiously (click here for more information on how to drive safely for wildlife) and report suspicious actions to the appropriate authorities.
Harming turtles is illegal and there are criminal ramifications to doing so such as up to $250,000 in fines and 5 years in prison for an individual.
