Our mission, at Turtle Rescue Team, is to provide the highest quality medical and husbandry care for sick and injured wild turtles, reptiles, and amphibians in the hopes of returning them to their natural habitat. We strive to give our students the best hands-on experiences possible to further enrich their veterinary training. Through educational outreach programs, we also hope to show North Carolinians the importance of conserving and protecting our native wildlife and ecosystem.
