Dreams Come True - Bio Pond Turtles Saved


Another day, another victory for justice. About two weeks ago, in our inaugural mono week, UTB wrote an impassioned appeal to save the biopond turtles. Through our hashtag #StandWithMonoTurtles, we galvanized this community and advocated for the right thing. 

Yesterday, our efforts paid off. In a letter to the DP, Greenhouse and Garden manager Joshua Darfler said that after hearing from "thoughtful and concerned individuals" (that's us), they decided that the biopond turtles would not be euthanized. Instead, they will be gently and patiently escorted to the tri-state area. 

Animal rights is a topic close to all of us at UTB. Stay tuned for more hard-hitting coverage of Penn's many living species.
