Turtle Crossing Signs

We have provided Mohawk and Ojibway Turtle Crossing signs to First Nations communities to mitigate traffic threats against Species at Risk turtles.  Anishinaabe artist, Peggy Pitawanakwat from Wikwemikong Unceded Reserve, donated the image which was used for the Ojibway sign (right) and the Haudenosaunee Environmental Task Force, and the Turtle Island Conservation team collaborated to create the Mohawk sign (left).
