Turtle Takeover: Prospect Park Zoo

What’s the difference between a turtle and tortoise? How do researchers track them in the wild? Visit the Prospect Park Zoo every weekend in June where turtles (and tortoises) are taking over. Learn fascinating facts about every member of the chelonian family and find out why many of them are seriously in danger of extinction. Scavenger hunt, keeper talks, live animals and turtle themed activities will take place throughout the zoo!
