Greater Vancouver Zoo Turtle Dash Race

What is the GVZoo Turtle Dash?

This year at the Greater Vancouver Zoo, we are kicking off what we hope to become an annual traditional – The Turtle Dash. This inaugural 5km race and 1km hatchling run event promises to be a unique and fun experience for all ages, encouraging the community to move their feet to raise valuable funds for animal conservation.

Become a sponsor and connect with the Greater Vancouver Zoo’s members and visitors, who are largely from the Fraser Valley and Tri-City areas. All race profits will go towards funding conservation projects at the GVZoo as well as the following groups we partner with: Wildlife Preservation Canada, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and International Rhino Foundation.

The Western Painted Turtle is the only remaining native pond turtle left in B.C. In 2006 the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) listed the Pacific Coast Population of the Western Painted Turtle as endangered. Since 2012, the Greater Vancouver Zoo has been working with Wildlife Preservation Canada and the Coastal Painted Turtle Project to release 776 hatchlings back into the wild, helping to ensure the ongoing preservation of the species.

With your support we can continue to conserve this wonderful species and help other endangered animals.
