'Shellebrating' World Turtle Day

May 23, 2019

Today is World Turtle Day, so we're taking the time to appreciate Arkansas turtles with herpetologist Kory Roberts, author of the website Herps of Arkansas. World Turtle Day has been sponsored by American Tortoise Rescue since 2000. Its purpose is to increase knowledge and respect for turtles and tortoises and to encourage action to help them survive and thrive.
