Public Service Announcement

From the Juniper Moon Farm Blog. Now I know I am not alone in this fight and maybe I’m not the only person who cries when one gets hit minutes before I can get him…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just a friendly reminder to slow down when driving and be on the lookout for turtles crossing the road. Roads are one of the most prominent threats to turtles. I have stopped my car to move 10 turtles out of the road in the last week or so, and I’ve passed another handful that had already been hit by cars. Nothing wrecks my mood like passing a late turtle.

If you see a turtle in the road and have the opportunity to move it without endangering your own life, be sure to move it well off the road in the direction it was headed.
