Turtles are one of the world’s oldest reptile groups, dating back much further than snakes, crocodiles, and alligators. These organisms predate the dinosaurs and evolved 250 million years earlier. Apparently there are 300 species of turtles in the world, of which 129 are in danger of extinction. That is why World Turtle Day is celebrated internationally. On this day, people are reminded of the importance of helping turtles live and grow in their natural habitat.
