World Turtle Day '09

The purpose of World Turtle Day, May 23, sponsored yearly since 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue, is to bring attention to, and increase knowledge of and respect for, turtles and tortoises, and encourage human action to help them survive and thrive.
.
Turtle Day is celebrated worldwide in a variety of ways, from dressing up as turtles to saving turtles caught on highways, to research activities.

.
"The Goffles" is an unofficial turtle fan club centered in Ohio which celebrates World Turtle Day every year by educating the public about turtles, dressing up as turtles, learning more about turtles or visiting turtles in a zoo or aquarium, among other activities.
