Turtles of Cootes: careful crossing the road!



It's not like they have a chance, being short, slow and focused on laying their eggs in sandy soil. Not when there's a 4 lane, 80 km/h divided highway cutting through the place where they live.

At 80 or 90km/h will you have time to notice the turtle, then take evasive action? Will the person in the car behind you have time? 

We need to do more to protect turtles and other at risk species from getting totally wiped out in our corner of the world. More on this subject to come.
