How can you help turtles on the roads?
* Raise the awareness to drivers of turtles in areas with signage
* Roads to turtles, lizards, snakes - most reptiles, are just one big basking rock to warm up on - they don't realise the danger they put themselves in.
* Slow down in turtle areas. Slower speeds give us more time to see them and react to help it get safely off the road. If you carry a turtle off the road, please put it off the road in the direction it was heading, otherwise, it will still try and recross the road.
* Turtles are more active on the roads during the warmer days.
* Scan the road ahead and the sides of the roads for anything that may move in front of your vehicle.
* In turtle habitat areas, never assume a small lump on the road is a rock - it may just be a turtle.
* Ask your passenger/s to help you look for wildlife - more eyes looking is better for everyone to safely get to their destinations. You can make a game of it too, who is the first one to spot the wildlife first? Who has the keen eyesight in your vehicle?
