May 23rd is World Turtle Day, a holiday that was founded over 10 years ago by the American Tortoise Rescue. What do you and your family know about the splendor of turtles? The earliest known turtles date from 215 million years ago. They are one of the most ancient beings on our planet. This is why turtles have powerful spiritual meanings in most cultures and native tribes. This spring and summer take a vacation to the beach when the turtle eggs hatch and experience this special moment of turtle power.
