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.
Turtles are among the most threatened groups of animals on the planet, and are in desperate need of conservation help. More than half of their 300+ species are threatened with extinction according to IUCN Red List criteria. Primary threats to turtles and tortoises include habitat loss and degradation, high-volume unsustainable consumptive exploitation for food and medicinal products, and illegal international pet trade.

The Turtle Conservancy is an amazing organisation.

GTT visited The Turtle Conservancy in California in 2015 and 2016 and The Turtle Conservancy collaborated on the GTT Book 3.

The Turtle Consevancy wrote a very nice article in their beautiful magazine The Tortoise in 2016.
