No MOre Trash! 2014 Peanut Pin

No MOre Trash! 2014 Peanut Pin

The 2014 No MOre Trash! participation pin was specially designed to commemorate the 30th birthday of NMT mascot, Peanut the Turtle. Peanut is a living example of how litter can affect wildlife. When young, the red-eared slider crawled into a plastic six-pack ring that someone had thrown on the ground instead of a trashcan. The ring got hung on her shell. Eventually, her shell grew but the ring stayed on, giving her the shape of a peanut. She was found and taken to the St. Louis Zoo where the ring was cut off. She has lived with the Missouri Department of Conservation since 1993.

Peanut the Red Eared Slider

Peanut, a red-eared slider turtle, was found with a discarded plastic six-pack holder around her shell. The piece of litter had been around her shell for about four years and her shell had grown around it. The plastic was removed and Peanut is doing well. Most animals are not so lucky when it comes to litter. Learn what you can do to help at www.nomoretrash.org.
