Ian Brown, author of the "Albert the Tortoise" picture book series, published by Graffeg, went all out for World Turtle Day this year to help make a difference for real turtles and tortoises.

World Turtle Day® was founded by American Tortoise Rescue in the year 2000. According to its offical website, "The day was created as a yearly observance to help people celebrate and protect turtles and tortoises and their disappearing habitats around the world." The celebration has grown larger each year and is truly a world holiday, now, with events taking place not just in the United States but in many other countries as well. Here's a 2022 Twitter Search to give you some idea of just how many countries, entities and individuals all took part.

Earlier this year, Albert the tortoise was made UK ambassador both to the Sofa Cushion Challenge and the Valley Chapter of the California Turtle & Tortoise Club. So, for World Turtle Day, Ian created the video you can view at the top of this page urging all his fans and followers to consider helping the CTTC-Valley via the Sofa Cushion Challenge as well as suggesting the support of American Tortoise Rescue.

A few hours later a second video appeared, this one "from" Albert, himself. He reminds kids that he was also a rescued tortoise once and asks that they remember his cousins who might also need rescuing.

Throughout the entire weekend leading up to World Turtle Day, "Albert the Tortoise" social media was full of World Turtle Day reminders. You can view some of them here along with "Albert's World Turtle Day & National Tortoise Day" blog post which is here.
