Since we've moved, we've been trying our best to save turtles that are crossing roads. They've mostly been Eastern Painted turtles but today I was able to help a Wood Turtle cross a busy road. In a weird way, because they are slow moving, it's easier for cars to avoid them I think but there are big trucks that might not see them and mean people so it's best to move them in the direction they were going to safety. I love turtles! They are so cool.
