This holiday season, we extend our warmest thanks and appreciation to all our partners who have helped us protect some of the most threatened species on our planet. This year we celebrate the great strides we have made in many areas, especially in South Africa for the beautiful Geometric Tortoise, for which we established the 212-acre Geometric Tortoise Preserve. There is still an urgent need of funds for the expansion of this preserve to 1,100 acres, which we hope to raise in the near future. This land is a key habitat not only for this Critically Endangered tortoise, but also for the many threatened flora and fauna that live there. In terms of botanical species, this region is one of the richest on Earth for biodiversity.
In the past 40 years over half of the world’s wildlife populations have disappeared. This is a crisis of epic proportions that needs your help before it is too late.
Now is the perfect time to give back to our planet by supporting our efforts to protect turtles and tortoises, the most threatened group of animals on Earth.
Your generosity will enable the Turtle Conservancy to achieve the following goals:
