As always, June was a very busy month at the KTTC. Many of our patients are brought in during the month of June, the height of turtle nesting season. A total of sixty-six (66) turtles have been admitted so far this year! We’d like to thank the Riverview Park & Zoo, Sherbrook Heights Animal Hospital & Toronto Wildlife Centre for their continued support and assistance with admissions.
This June also saw the 1st 5km Run for Turtles. The day was a wet one, but over 60 runners and lots of kids came out and raised over $2500! Those who missed it can still catch a glimpse of the wonderful turtle spirit through photos taken by The Examiner. Congratulations to event organizer Danielle Tassie and all the volunteers who helped out – the final final results will be released soon!
