WORLD TURTLE DAY
Sponsored by American Tortoise Rescue, World Turtle Day brings attention to, and respect for, turtles and tortoises… encouraging human action to help them survive and thrive.
World Turtle Day is celebrated around the globe in a variety of ways, from dressing up as turtles or wearing green summer dresses, to saving turtles caught on highways, to research activities. Turtle Day lesson plans and craft projects encourage teaching about turtles in classrooms.
The cast and crew of the 1990 classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie (which turns 30 this year) will be joining everyone online today to eat pizza and talk mutagen ooze and turtles.
