According to the San Diego Zoo, there are about 250 different turtle species.
According to the first link, there are about 270 species of turtles and counting. The second link is a list of the scientific and common names of all the turtle species.
The Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection states that there are currently “328 species of turtle” known worldwide, with 57 of these found in North America. I believe that this number also accounts for tortoises. In addition, according to treehugger, more than half of the globe”s “turtles and tortoises are threatened with extinction.”
