The town of Dundas is home to several species of turtles. Click above to learn about them and see photos taken by our volunteers.

Our volunteers have seen some amazing scenes over the years. Watch some of their favourite moments and compilations here.

People Power

As the word spreads about DTW, the public has become increasingly aware of the need to help local turtles. See public photo submissions above.

Dundas Turtle Watch wishes to thank the Hamilton Community Foundation, the Dougher Fund, and Canadian Tire for their recent donations and assistance. We couldn’t help native turtles without you.

The summer warmth and longest daylight is upon us! Whether driving, biking, or even just walking, we urge you to commute with caution, as many species also traverse our roads and trails.
