"I have a box turtle that has been in captivity for over a decade and now I'd like to let it go. I was worried about her having to fend for herself again. Someone told me it was okay to let her go in a strawberry patch in the end of pring. What are your views on this?"
Usually, the long form of the question is something like this:
"I have had this turtle for a few years. I don’t want it anymore. Wouldn’t it be happier in the wild? Where can I let it go?"
Since most pet turtles are not native to the area where they end up, they cannot be released.
If your turtle is native, for example, you took it home or found it in your yard, contact a local Wildlife Rescue and work with them.
