TURTLE SURVIVAL CENTER
Conservation in Action
Located in Cross, South Carolina, the Turtle Survival Center (TSC) was founded to support our mission of zero turtle extinctions worldwide. Since 2013, we have established scientifically managed populations of critically endangered species and provided involvement opportunities for turtle conservationists of all ages.
The TSC is home to more than 750 turtles and tortoises, including 23 of the world’s most endangered species. Here, the species maintained for population management have been carefully chosen based on conservation status, lack of effective protection in the wild, poor history of captive-breeding success, and ability to thrive in South Carolina’s mild, subtropical climate.
