    Awesome! I have saved 8 this summer! Painted Turtles, an Eastern Box, and a big old snapper! Just remember when saving them, whatever way they are facing on the road is the side we take them to, otherwise they’ll be right back in the road!

    I did save a turtle crossing the road and received applause from drivers passing by. I thought it was a very positive experience for me… and the turtle..

    Oh, I have always stopped to save turtles! It’s the kind thing to do.

    This one looks like it has sunflowers painted on its shell!
