For a one-time gift of $75 you will be helping to protect, conserve, and restore the waters of Georgian Bay, home to hundreds of species of flora and fauna, including fifty species at risk. 


The beloved Blanding's turtle, who live throughout Georgian Bay and much of southern and central Ontario, are threatened due to pollution, habitat loss, and other types of human interferance. This turtle is slow to sexually mature and breed, so the loss of females due to road traffic and predation is especially impactful to their population. 


At Georgian Bay Forever, we work to conserve the Blanding's turtle's natural habitat, and educate the public as to how we can all reduce added pressure on this vulnerable species. 


For your gift you will receive

  • A 9x12-inch print of “Blanding's Turtle”, a limited-edition giclée print of an original pen, charcoal, and gouache illustration created by Toronto artist Laura Thipphawong for Georgian Bay Forever. There are fifty total editions of this print, and each one is signed, titled, and numbered on the back.
  • An email certificate aknowledging your contribution as well as some additional information on the species and how your gift helps to protect it. 
  • A tax receipt for $50.
