Simple actions make a big difference. Ecocity spring wildlife advocacy campaign is currently active in Canton, New York, Saint Lawrence County, where hibernating turtles are waking up and crossing roads. Please post to the hashtag #safeturtlecrossing with photos of any turtles you were able to save from danger crossing roads, along with the species if you are able to determine it.
We have just relaunched Ecocity.com today, with this campaign and have the goal to provide rewards for ‘Ecocity pioneers’ who take action on behalf of the local environment. In your own home, please work together to keep track of the number of turtle lives you save. Simply moving them off the road toward their destination does wonders for your turtle karma. Good luck, and thank you for taking action in support of the rights of nature. :)
We will be updating this page as the campaign develops.
