The Big Turtle Year: Celebrating Wild Turtles Across The United States
Join George Heinrich, Field Biologist and Environmental Educator, as he describes for us his journey across the United States in search of as many turtle species as possible and the important work of the Florida Turtle Conservation Trust.

Turtles play significant ecological roles, are visible elements in many habitats, and are among the most endangered wildlife globally. The United States is the most turtle-rich country in the world (62 species), but unfortunately the plight of many species quietly goes unnoticed. The goal of The Big Turtle Year was to increase awareness regarding the status of these often-overlooked species and to emphasize their rich diversity, natural history, and conservation needs. Throughout 2017, Florida Turtle Conservation Trust researchers traveled across the country and back again trying to find as many species as possible while learning about these important vertebrates and the people who study them.
