NEW PROJECT:We have been contacted by Boxturtles.com and is currently evaluating different oppertunities to start a joint venture to breed and release endangered asian box turtles here in Thailand.
The Impressed Tortoise, Manouria impressa, lives in Thailand’s mountain forests.
Of the estimated 72 turtle species native to Southeast Asia, half
are endangered or critically endangered.*
We created the Thai Turtle Trust in 2007 to help save these amazing creatures. Past work includes:
... providing incubators for a program in Thailand working to breed the critically endangered Giant Siamese Softshell Turtle Chitra chitra.
... funding a public awareness campaign in Thailand about the illegal wildlife trade,
... Providing scholarships for two students from
Maylasia and Cambodia Asia to learn the latest field techniques in
studying turtles and Tortoises.
