Box Turtle Rescue

This male box turtle was seen trying to cross Wayne Avenue south of the IUP campus. The five lane highway here poses a major challenge for migrating turtles and we were happy to rescue this one before he was run over. We moved him to the other side of the road and hope that he has safe travels from here on out. We estimate this male was about 20 years old.
