Turtle-y awesome books!

We love turtles! Did you know there are eight species of turtles in Ontario and all eight are species at risk? There are wetlands and other places in and around Kingston that are perfect turtle habitats, which is why Turtles Kingston works hard to keep turtles safe.

Read these books to understand more about our turtle friends, and register for Turtle Trials with Turtles Kingston on Apr. 30. It's an adventure through a turtle's life cycle and all the trials they face -- have fun and learn at the same time!
