Eastern Box turtle

Eastern Box turtle was being offered to anyone that would take her on a street in downtown Roanoke. Our volunteer quickly adopted the turtle and brought her to the center. Sadly, this turtle’s shell is damaged and we don’t know where her home is, making this turtle unreleasable. She will become an education animal. Hopefully, her story will help teach the public why removing animals from nature is not only bad for wildlife but also for us. In addition, the graffiti placed on her shell will effect her health and cannot be scrubbed off! Please be an advocate for wildlife and help them stay in wild healthy habitats.
