What kind of planet do you want to leave behind for your grandchildren and future generations? Turtles have lived for 230 million years and endured multiple catastrophic mass extinctions but their future is threatened by human-made environmental changes and other threats. Whether your passion for turtles originated in childhood or was cultivated later in life, you can help ensure there are no turtle extinctions so your grandchildren can learn about and preserve turtles for their children and future generations.
