Wisconsin Turtle Conservation Program

Wisconsin Turtle Conservation Program

This map exhibits counties in Wisconsin where volunteer and WDNR observers have reported significant numbers of turtle road crossings and fatalities. Volunteers are highly beneficial partners to the WTCP in that they can cover much larger areas than WDNR employees. If you wish to report a turtle roadside mortality, submit an online report or print and fill out a Road Crossing Mortality & Turtle Sighting Form and mail it to the WDNR.

Map of frequency of turtle mortality in Wisconsin by county

Results are categorized both qualitatively and quantitatively and will be updated yearly.
