HSUS Turtle Project

HSUS pairs with land developer to relocate box turtles near Washington, D.C.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has paired with Toll Brothers, a residential development company, and community members to relocate the endangered eastern box turtles in Washington Grove, Md. Toll Brothers contacted HSUS after community members voiced concerns about the company’s proposal to clear land to build homes. HSUS then partnered with residents to find 63 box turtles to relocate to a county park, and turtles requiring care to survive winter are being kept indoors under the care of an expert. This event marks the first time a large US residential development company has collaborated with HSUS to find solution for displaced wildlife.
