Education | Nest Protection

QFN is a grassroots organization that was established in 1949 and operates as an affiliate of Ontario Nature to protect and preserve, advocate for and educate about wild species and wild spaces.


Since 2014, QFN volunteers and local school groups have been promoting, producing and distributing turtle nest protectors, or as we like to call them, “Turtle ICUs” (Incubation Care Units).


QFN is engaged in educating the public about the plight of turtles and what individuals can do to protect them.  QFN is also a strong advocate for turtles and their habitat both locally and provincially.
