Turtle Crossing Signs to be installed in Maine

SOUTHERN MAINE - The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is hoping to cut down on the number of turtle road deaths by installing turtle crossing signs in a few southern Maine towns.

According to the Associated Press, the signs will be located in Wells, South Berwick and York and will warn motorists to beware of two of the state's rarest species that have been seen in those areas. The spotted and Blanding's turtles are both both protected under Maine's Endangered Species Act, and late May to early July is the time when females are actively searching for nesting areas. The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife asks motorists encountering roadside turtle signs to reduce their speed and increase their vigilance for potential road-crossing turtles.
