Message From DNR: Give Turtles a Brake!


Wild turtles are on the move as they head to their breeding and nesting sites. Maryland Department of Natural Resources reminds drivers to be cautious and give turtles a “brake.”

During this time of year, turtles can often be seen crossing roads. Be cautious when driving, help turtles cross the road when possible and never take a turtle home as a pet.

If you need to help a turtle cross the road, check for traffic and move the turtle in the direction it was traveling, until it is safely out of vehicle lanes.
