Our Covid-19 Response

During this Covid-19 pandemic, Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre IS permitted to continue caring for the turtles at the centre and also for injured turtles brought to the centre.

We are concerned about more than the turtles, of course, and we want to do everything we can to keep everyone safe while caring for them.

We have implemented all government recommended precautions to avoid social contact at our facility, and are implementing new measures to allow turtle admissions to continue, without direct human to human contact. If you find an injured turtle, our hotline staff (705 741 5000) will walk you through these new measures, to ensure the turtles get the care they need while helping keep humans safe.

Thank you to all our staff, volunteers and supporters for your patience, hard work and above all -good humour, throughout this challenging time.

Sue Carstairs, Executive and Medical Director
