If you see a turtle crossing a road, please help him to get safely to the other side.
Don’t move him back to the same side or relocate him. They are determined creatures and will just come back. Relocated turtles can wander in circles confused until they die. The best way to be helpful is to move them along and cross your fingers. Here’s some helpful information on traveling turtles.
I wrote this poem last year after witnessing a few tragic turtle accidents. Please drive safe!
