Road Researchers Guides
NOTE: THERE ARE DANGERS IN THIS ACTIVITY
Road Researchers have the important job of documenting turtle sightings, helping turtles cross the road, spotting nesting turtles and identifying areas of high turtle traffic. Below we have attached the Road Research Protocols and Reporting Intentional Harm to Turtles so that you know the best ways to help with our turtle conservation efforts.
Please download and read the guides below
Road Researchers have an important role to play. Please download the guide and decision tree below. The decision tree is a quick guide that directs you what to do in different turtley situations!
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.
