PICTURES: It's World Turtle Day

DID you know today is World Turtle Day? And that the collective term is a bale of turtles?

Started in 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue (, the day falls on May 23 each year and was created to help people celebrate and protect turtles and tortoises and their disappearing habitats around the world.  

 Have you seen the bale of turtles in Lake Weeroona?

Our photographer Jim Aldersey and reader Charlotte Strahan-Ferrie captured these images. If you have photographs that celebrate World Turtle Day, send them to
