Home of the largest and most diverse turtle collection on earth.
We are devoted to saving turtles and tortoises from extinction through acute rescue, long-term care, comprehensive research, scientific breeding, and finally - returning turtles to their native land with rewilding projects.
As an animal shelter and conservation center, we rescue unwanted and confiscated animals from illegal trade activities with the purpose of helping them thrive.
Through taxonomy, including genetic, studies and conservation breeding, we create assurance colonies to help save endangered turtle and tortoise species from extinction.
Our main objective is to contribute to the rewilding of the planet. We participate in reintroduction projects to repopulate the Earth with turtles from our breeding programs.
our efforts are paying off.
