Donate to help turtles

'Adopt a Turtle' – Donate now to help turtles in the Ausable Bayfield watershed

Ontario is home to eight turtle species, and all eight of these turtle species are found within the Ausable Bayfield watershed. Unfortunately, all of these turtles are currently at risk (special concern, threatened, or endangered) and need your help. Habitat loss and road mortality are two of the biggest threats these turtles face. Your donation will help provide education and outreach, turtle nest protection, and habitat enhancements. Donate now ...

Adopt a Wetland – Donate now to help protect and restore wetlands in the Ausable Bayfield watershed

Wetlands also provide homes to an abundance of wildlife, including turtles, birds, mammals and fish. Wetlands have mostly disappeared from our landscape, though, and your help is needed to protect what remains and restore previously existing wetlands. Donate now …
