Baby Turtle Makes a Break for the Water!

Tiny painted turtles leave their ground-based nests in March and April, after spending the winter underground. This hatchling has just emerged from a nest near Beaver Lake - she must hurry to reach safety before predators find her. Please report all turtle observations to HAT at 250 995 2428 to help save this endangered species.
