"It's not like me to do this. I have NEVER photographed and posted animals dead on the road before. Yesterday I went to the Wabashiki area along RT 40 at West Terre Haute Indiana with Louise Slaughterbeck from the Wabashiki Turtle Research and Rescue group. The dedicated members of this group are out there along this busy major highway rescuing turtles every single day. When I was there, the weather was cool and we didn't find any living turtles. But the highway was littered with the corpses of smashed turtles. In just a two hundred yard stretch of highway I photographed these thirty three dead turtles. People need to know what is happening here! The really sad thing is that engineering students from Rose Hulman University have drafted a very detailed and feasible plan to put in a system of culverts under the highway with drift fences guiding wildlife to the culverts. The Indiana Department of Transportation has turned down the plan. As things stand now, there is a severe danger to the turtles that affects the Wabashiki ecosystem and there is also a danger to motorists on the highway. Please contact the Indiana Department of Transportation at: http://www.in.gov/indot/2330.htm and tell them that you would like the plan developed by Rose Hulman University to be implemented at the Wabashiki area along RT 40." - Justin Guyer
