Turtle Rescue

Our turtle emergency hot-line receives dozens of calls every year. Between turtles nesting in the most unlikely places, to collisions on roadways, our emergency responder is our busiest volunteer. You can see some of his work from our 2022 season here.

Turtle ID

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

The safety and preparedness of our volunteers is always our top priority. Plan ahead with our tips above.

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.

As the forecast slowly begins to show signs of spring, the giant piles of snow will melt, and species that have been dormant for months will reappear. Always drive with caution and watch for them while you’re walking your favourite trails.
