Every year, World Turtle Day is celebrated across the World on May 23. This day is sponsored since 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue. Celebrating this day is to bring attention to, and increase knowledge of and respect for, turtles and tortoises and encourage human action to help them survive and thrive. According to American Tortoise Rescue, turtles and tortoises are threatened by the exotic food trade, habitat destruction, global warming and pet trade.
