Goals & Objectives

This generous group of volunteers drives injured turtles to the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre when the person who found the injured turtle is unable to do it themselves. Long-distance trips often involve multiple drivers to get the turtle from the location it was found to the OTCC.

Community Impact

While some drives are local, we do often receive calls regarding turtles from farther away that are in need of transport. So if you live far from the Peterborough area, or you commute on a regular basis you can still help out!

Volunteer Outcomes

Your name and email address will be added to our turtle taxi driver email list. This list receives emails about turtles needing rides and you only have to respond when you are available to do the drive! Turtles will be transported in enclosed containers – drivers do not need handle the animals directly. Interested volunteers do not need to have any experience with turtles to apply, but must have access to a vehicle.
