There is SOME data that suggests that Eastern Box turtles cannot survive if relocated. That would mean that if their habitats are destroyed, they can't be captured and moved to another. Their only chance, if this is proven to be the case, is captivity. Just to be fair, there are also those who argue that this theory is not true or proven.

Eve isn't going out to the woods collecting these turtles in large numbers. She found both in or near the road, right? If they are the least bit injured or in harms way, then she is right to take them in, IMO.
