Ontario Turtle tally is a fun, easy turtle monitoring project for people of all ages. It's a great activity for schools, families, cottagers, and community and naturalist groups across the province
Report your turtle sightings by entering your observations into our on-line database.
The purpose is to collect, record and store location and species information on Ontario turtles, including species at risk. Turtles are most often seen in June when they are traveling to reach their nesting sites. Adopt-A-Pond can help you learn to identify turtles by using our online resources! Contact Adopt-A-Pond to receive a hard copy of our Ontario Turtle Tally Package or see our on-line Turtles of Ontario guide to learn to identify the turtles in your area. All data collected online is shared with the Natural Heritage Information Centre (NHIC) and the Ontario Reptile and Amphibian Atlas at Ontario Nature.
