The Turtle Conservancy

The Turtle Conservancy is dedicated to protecting threatened turtles and tortoises and their habitats worldwide, and to promoting their appreciation by people everywhere.  They focus their work on 4 primary strategic areas:
1. Conserving the turtle species in their natural habitat, including land acquisition. The Turtle Conservancy protects over 65,000 acres of wild land—safeguarding not only the turtles and tortoises but also a whole host of plants and animals that call these places home.
2. Maintaining captive breeding programs to help restore natural populations.  The breeding program includes 32 species of turtles and tortoises, 12 of which are on The Top Endangered List.
3. Monitoring and helping to prevent trade that threatens species.  The Turtle Conservancy works closely with TRAFFIC in SE Asia to help address the illegal trade and poaching of sea turtles and tortoises.
4.  Spreading global awareness. Using social media, news letters as well as research and education programs The Turtle Conservancy is active in spreading awareness.
