Make a difference for Wisconsin's turtles

If you see a turtle, we want to hear about it!

The Wisconsin Turtle Conservation Program (WTCP) is a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) citizen-based monitoring program aimed to better catalog species' statewide distributions and to document high turtle mortality infrastructure locations to better manage and conserve Wisconsin’s turtles. The WTCP further encourages citizens to proactively conserve turtles in their neighborhoods by protecting turtle nests by building and installing nest cages (see printable pdf and online video). To report non-turtle, amphibian and reptile road mortalities, please submit those via the Reptile and Amphibian Road Mortality Reporting Form.
