THE TRAVELING TORTOISE


123-9e1adef42bc004b33200733501a314be_TravtortPhotoThe Traveling Tortoise was founded on the principle of the importance of early childhood science education. Learning science early in a child’s life can lay the foundation for a lifetime love of science. For over a decade, The Traveling Tortoise has provided “hands-on” science education for children of all ages and abilities. Thousands of students, from preschool thru high-school, have learned and enjoyed their interactive, live animal science education. In addition to offering youth science education, The Traveling Tortoise provides injured wildlife (turtles) care services in Wake County, are members in both North Carolina and Virginia’s Herpetological Societies,and are yearly participants at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences Reptile Day.  BOOK THE TRAVELING TORTOISE
