Turtles: Canada's culture in a shell

Turtles: Canada's culture in a shell

By Raechel Bonomo, Staff Writer at the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC)

Ten feet away emerged a small creature from the glass-like water to stretch its tiny head from under a strong shell. Swimming through shadowy water, the darkness of the lake only made its yellow neck more prevalent. As we carefully paddled closer to our new friend, he greeted us with a distinguishable smile. It was a Blanding’s turtle.
