Why Turtles Are Cool
This program will introduce attendees to the fascinating world of turtles. Did you know that the sex of some species is determined at a pivotal point during egg incubation, or that turtles are among the most endangered group of animals on earth? How about the fact that turtles can ‘talk’ and are more social than we realized? Learn about their diversity and conservation, as well as the latest research findings. This webinar is recommended for ages 16+.

This webinar is part of "Turtle Science 101," a 3-part series of monthly programs.
