WeAnimalsJMcArthurAug2013-5629

This is a wildlife documentary I created to promote awareness for turtle conservation. This film profiles a one-of-a-kind turtle hospital in Peterborough, Ontario and their efforts to rehabilitate turtles. Key aspects of their mandate are discussed with a central focus on saving turtles that have been run over by vehicles on roads and highways.

The topics include:

  •  the origins of the KTTC
  • the turtle nursery
  • the process of caring for turtles that have been run over by vehicles
  • the campaigns to create awareness for turtle conservation
  • their unique turtle tracking programs
  • how eco-passages work
  • how to safely remove snapping turtles from roads and highways
  • how to get involved with turtle conservation
