Have you hugged a turtle today?

Today is World Turtles Day!

May 23 is World Turtle Day, an annual celebration to increase awareness of turtles everywhere. World Turtle Day was started 13 years ago by the American Tortoise Rescue (ATR).

To learn more about leatherback turtles, check out our book, Leatherback Turtles, Giant Squids, and Other Mysterious Animals of the Deepest Seas by Ana Maria Rodriquez from our Extreme Animals from Extreme Environments series! And don't forget to hug a turtle today.

The leatherback is named for it's unique shell that looks like leather.
