'TURTLES IN TROUBLE' EXHIBIT OPENS MARCH 29
featuring 20 of Mark Muhich's ceramic turtles!
Turtles survived the great extinction that ended the reign of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, and they withstood the ice ages that ended just a few thousand years ago. Today though, life is tough for turtles, and that is the subject of a new MSU Museum exhibit, "Turtles in Trouble," opening March 29.
"Now turtles are in serious trouble," observes MSU Museum naturalist Jim Harding, who also teaches in the Department of Zoology. "At least two-thirds of turtle species worldwide are declining and threatened with extinction, and several species have become extinct in the wild over just the last few years."
