20th Anniversary

Celebrating 20 Years

On May 11, 2004, Turtle Survival Alliance gained independence—officially registered as a stand-alone nonprofit—after operating under the auspices of the IUCN Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Specialist Group for the first three years.

It is with great pride and overflowing appreciation that this May we celebrate 20 years of our long-term, science-based initiatives worldwide.

Together, we’ve made lasting strides, and we hope you’ll continue to join us as we expand our efforts toward a future where every turtle species thrives in the wild. Here’s to the next chapter.
