Dustin Milne, from Calgary, has been visiting Peterborough for the summer and happened to find out that we were looking to build a special turtle enclosure. Dustin’s experience is in set building for musical performances, but through this work he has become a talented builder with a highly creative mind. He was able to get materials donated and create a masterpiece that we are thrilled with. We can now invite people to the centre to show them our public education area with live turtles on display!

Blandella, our resident non- releasable Blanding’s turtle, has spent the last three weeks in her new, lavish, enclosure and is settling in well. Andrea, another non-releasable Blanding’s turtle that is blind, is going to be moved in shortly.
