Established in 2010 at the Fort Worth Zoo through a grant
Turtle Watch is a citizen science program developed to
collect data on three native turtle species whose population
numbers are poorly understood.
Staff from the Fort Worth Zoo,
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the Fort Worth
Nature Center, Texas Master Naturalists,
Turtle Survival Alliance and the
have partnered to develop this wildlife
watch program. After collecting numbers and trends over
time, this data will directly contribute to an understanding of
native turtle species.
Through the Texas Turtle Watch program, local citizens of
all ages are provided an unique opportunity to explore the
world around them while contributing to local conservation
efforts. Help us by clicking on the links below to get started
