World Turtle Weekend

Saturday, May 25th and Sunday, May 26th, 2019
10:00am – 4:00pm
Free with Admission

Turtles around the world are threatened with extinction, but they are also some of the most honoured and celebrated creatures on earth! Join Toronto Zoo’s Adopt-A-Pond Wetland Conservation Programme for a fun filled day at the Zoo where your family will discover the diversity of turtles; how conservationists are helping to save turtles globally; and how you can protect these amazing animals here in Ontario.

Visit the Canadian Wetlands to learn how to identify all eight of Ontario’s turtles, how you can help Ontario turtles through our Turtle Tally citizen science programme, and play turtle themed games. Don’t miss out on our turtle bouncy castle, where your $2 donation goes directly to turtle conservation projects right here in Ontario!
