Around the World

Turtle Survival Alliance directly impacts the survival of 20 of the world's Top 25 most endangered tortoises and freshwater turtles and benefits 33% of Earth's 353 species.

Turtle Survival Alliance operates or supports projects in fifteen countries around the world, protecting habitat, and putting people and resources on the ground, for the most imperiled turtle and tortoise species.

Turtle Survival Center

To help Turtle Survival Alliance and its partners achieve the goal of zero turtle extinctions, Turtle Survival Alliance founded the Turtle Survival Center to establish scientifically managed populations of species that are likely to depend on captive management to avoid extinction. There is an increasing need to integrate in situ (in nature) and ex situ (in captivity) conservation strategies to ensure that, whenever appropriate, ex situ conservation is used to support in situ conservation to the best effect possible. Turtle Survival Alliance will seek to accomplish this by integrating its programs at the TSC with its own field programs as well as those of its many partner individuals, organizations, and governments. Offspring produced from carefully managed conservation breeding programs can be used for wild population augmentation or reintroduction, thus providing options for the future. The Turtle Survival Center also provides opportunities for young turtle conservationists from around the world to learn about all aspects of captive husbandry for a variety of critically endangered chelonians, their reproductive biology, enclosure design and maintenance, and veterinary care.
