You've all seen the Wabashiki Turtle Research and Rescue Group and the problem at the Wabashiki Welands talked about on Facebook. On this episode of HTR you will find out exactly how big the problem is and what you can do to help.
Dozens of turtles are being run over on highway 40/150 along the Wabashiki protected wetlands at West Terre Haute Indiana. Here are plans for a system of culverts under the highway designed to give the turtles safe passage that was drafted by engineering students at Rose Hulman Institute of Technology:https://www.facebook.com/download/822434907791390/Rose%20Turtle%20Proposal.pdf
The Indiana Department of Transportation turned these plans down. The Indiana Department of Transportation can be contacted at: http://www.in.gov/indot/2330.htm
