Turtles need your help!
Central Lake Ontario Conservation continues to offer the Turtles 4 Tomorrow Stewardship Program. This program identifies monitors and protects native turtle populations in our watershed and at 3 Provincially Significant Coastal Wetlands in the communities of Whitby, Oshawa and Clarington.
How Can You Help?
- Become a citizen scientist and report turtle sightings in your watershed using our Turtle & Nest Tracker ( You can even use your cell phone!)
- Get Involved in CLOCA's turtle Nesting Protection Program
- Watch out for Turtles when driving. Turtles love to lay their nests on the gravel shoulder of roads and are active in the morning and at dusk.
- Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre - If you find a turtle that is injured, contact the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre in Peterborough at 705-741-5000. You will have to collect the turtle and deliver it to the Centre so be prepared to commit to the travel time and cost of gas. Details are available on their webpage on how to collect and drop-off a turtle.
