Every year on May 23, American Tortoise Rescue (ATR), a non-profit organisation, observes World Turtle Day. This event is intended to raise awareness about the need to maintain turtles, tortoises, and their increasingly disappearing habitats. These reptiles serve an important part of our planet, surviving in a variety of environments across the world. This year's theme is 'I Love Turtles,' emphasising the critical need to conserve these species and their future in the face of dwindling habitats.
