Time to begin

Did you know that Northern Diamondback Turtles are the only species of turtle that can live solely in the brackish waters up and down the eastern seaboard. They are also the only species that has both clawed and webbed feet. Welcome to our Turtle Teachings blog. Here we will share with you our journey through our project. We will be working with Terrapin turtle conservation to help develop new conservation efforts to help save this beautiful species.We hope you will join us.
