Oregon Zoo Caring For 23 Northwestern Pond Turtles

(Portland, OR) -- The Oregon Zoo is caring for 23 tiny northwestern pond turtles. They're an endangered species. The hatchlings are taken from the Columbia River Gorge and placed in a special habitat that allows them to grow as much as they would in three years in about nine months, so that when they're returned to the wild they have a better chance at survival.
