Join the Shellebration!
It’s time for the second annual International Turtle and Tortoise Week! Zoo Med Labs has teamed up again with the Turtle and Tortoise Preservation Group (TTPG) and we invite you to join us for a full week of appreciating, understanding, and celebrating the turtles and tortoises of the world.
Unfortunately, these ancient creatures have quietly become some of the most threatened and endangered species in the world. With this year’s second annual ITTW, the week of April 17-21 will be dedicated to learning about these animals and what we can do to ensure their future survival.
Together Zoo Med and the TTPG have planned a week full of turtle and tortoise content to honor our shelled friends and help spread our love for turtles and tortoises. For all the educators out there, we would like to give you a FREE Turtle and Tortoise Learning Package! Bring the delightful world of turtles and tortoises into your classroom, scout group, aquarium club, after school program, or other organization. Complete with a Turtle and Tortoise Lesson Plan, engaging puzzles, games, and craft activities to help you make the most of International Turtle and Tortoise Week with your class.
For everyone else, show us your turtle and tortoise love and we will give a prize to EVERYONE who participates! Stay tuned for details about the contest including the GRAND prize for our favorite entry.
