​The ​Concord Free Public Library ​now has two endangered baby Blanding's turtles, Juan and Vlad, who live in a tank​ in the Children’s ​Library. Vlad and Juan are part of Zoo New England's Headstarting program, in which endangered turtle hatchlings are raised in captivity for a year or two to give them an advantage to surviving into adulthood. By giving children an up-close chance to interact with these special turtles, we hope to inspire curiosity and activism in these young people and show them how their efforts to care for these animals can impact the species.
