Join Toronto Zoo’s Adopt-A-Pond team this World Turtle Weekend to learn about what turtles are up to this time of year, and how to protect them during the critical nesting season. This workshop provides an interactive presentation with both Toronto Zoo and Parks Canada staff, an opportunity to build a turtle nest protector, meet our Blanding's turtle ambassador Captain Sunshine, and after the program, join our Species Recovery staff on an optional visit to the America’s Pavilion to see the young Blanding's turtles in our care at your Toronto Zoo. A portion of the revenue generated by this event will directly support conservation efforts for turtles in the Greater Toronto Area.
