This program will introduce the fascinating world of turtles and turtle science.
Did you know that the sex of some species is determined at a pivotal point during egg incubation, or that turtles are among the most endangered group of animals on earth?
How about the fact that turtles can ‘talk’ and are actually more social than we realized?
Learn about their diversity, conservation, and the latest research findings.
