I FOUND AN INJURED TURTLE. WHAT DO I DO?

Step One:

Contain the injured turtle in a box and move the box to safety (especially if you cannot take the turtle with you). Injured turtles that are not contained may wander away, be predated, or hit by a car.

Step Two:

Write down or 'pin' the location where you found the turtle. If you can, list an exact address, road, or mile (if on the highway). 

Step Three:

CALL 508-404-7887 or 774-318-0734 to reach our emergency hotlines, and follow instructions given by rescue staff.

 

Please note that our only clinic location is in Massachusetts. If you need help finding a wildlife clinic or licensed turtle rehabilitator in your area, we can still assist you.
