DutiesKawartha Turtle Trauma Centre (KTTC) is seeking volunteer drivers who are willing to assist with transport of native turtles that have been injured on Ontario's roadways. While many drives are located within the Kawarthas, KTTC is now becoming more widely recognized and we are receiving calls from all over Ontario. We often use a relay system to transport turtles to the centre to receive the emergency medical care that they require. Volunteers are added to a contact list and need only to respond when contacted if they are available to do the drive. 
 
Interested volunteers do not need to have any experience with turtles to apply, but must have access to a vehicle.
