The Issue: Modern Challenges Face Turtle Populations
Though turtles and tortoises have survived in the wild for more than 200 million years, their numbers are dwindling due to the exotic-food industry, habitat destruction, and the pet trade. When these animals are injured or abandoned, they can have a difficult time finding adoptive families because they lack the immediate appeal of a furry companion animal. Financial constraints also impact the care for turtles and tortoises due to their need for fresh fruits, vegetables, hay, and special worms.
The Campaign: Planting Fruit Trees to Feed Rescued Turtles
If 60 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then American Tortoise Rescue can plant three 7- to 9-year-old fruit trees to help feed box turtles and south american tortoises. American Tortoise Rescue will receive the already-mature fruit trees from the local Moon Mountain Farms. Each additional $200 raised will fund an additional fruit tree to expand the orchard. Any funds raised past $1,000 will go toward the Rosie Fund and toward purchasing a 2,000-gallon vertical plastic storage tank that will help the rescue maintain a clean-water supply during emergencies and draughts.
