Spotted Turtle Fundraiser

When: Thu., April 26 2018

Thanks to declining water quality, loss of habitat, poaching and an increase in natural predators, the spotted turtle has become so difficult to find in Northeast Ohio that the Ohio Department of Natural Resources' Division of Wildlife has listed the shallow wetlands turtle as a threatened species that should be "vigorously protected." Because of the turtles' endangered status, the Greater Cleveland Aquarium works with numerous regional environmental and educational agencies to help keep them alive. The Aquarium recently announced a partnership with Terrestrial Brewing Company, which will produce a special beer (dubbed "I Love It When I Save the Turtles Porter") to contribute to the cause. They'll celebrate its release today at the brewery from 4 to 6:30 p.m. (Niesel)
