World Turtle Day

In celebration of World Turtle Day, here’s smiley Norman, the Giant Asian Pond turtle and our two endangered coahuilan box turtle, who you can find in our Reptile House.

The day, which also celebrates tortoises, aims to educate people about the threats they’re facing, including fishing, climate change and plastic pollution and how we can help protect them and their diminishing habitats.
