What an amazing community event at Simon Lake for the release of these 31 snapping turtles! On-site were media, Wild at Heart volunteers, Atikameksheng Anishnawbek staff and elders including Heather, Joan, and Damien, and the general public. View our release video here.
You can now symbolically adopt a snapping turtle! This will help Wild at Heart repair injured shells, or incubate eggs again in the future.
