Baby turtles actually don’t spend any time with their mother after they hatch, so usually they are fine if left alone. Most likely, you will see a new hatchling making its way from its nest site on land to the closest wetland. IF the baby is in a dangerous location, such as the middle of the road, you can help it out by carrying it across. Try to assess which direction the turtle was going, and carry it that same direction, otherwise it may turn around and cross the road again. If there is a wetland nearby, you can carry the turtle all the way to the edge of the water and set it down.

This is very helpful information. Thank you.
I hope all the game wardens and town managers in the state of Vermont, get this information.
