OTCC’s Mission

Our mission is to Protect and Conserve Ontario’s Native Turtles and their Habitat…

We accomplish this by operating a turtle hospital that treats, rehabilitates, and releases injured turtles, by performing extensive research in the field to further conservation initiatives, and by running a comprehensive education and outreach program.

As an organization, we strive to increase awareness of the challenges facing Ontario’s turtles and to inspire individuals to act to help. We’re big believers that every person truly can make a difference!
