Environmentalists: No migrating turtle deaths reported in Rockland County in 2021

Environmentalists in Rockland County say there has been zero road fatalities this year of snapping turtles migrating across Western Highway.
The Turtles of Western Highway organization say pregnant snapping turtles migrated across the highway to lay their eggs back starting in March.
Lots of credit goes to the turtle crossing guard volunteers who helped them on their safe journey.
There was one turtle injury though. The turtle suffered a broken femur, cracked pelvic bone, and severely cracked shell after being was struck by a car in a rainstorm. The turtle had 35 intact eggs ready to bury in a nest.
The turtle was treated by a veterinarian and will be rehabilitating with the Turtles of Western Highway for at least one year.
