We are committed to providing chelonian education and resources for the public. Our Facebook Group is a source of support and advice for turtle and tortoise owners. 

Anyone who has ever been fascinated by observing a turtle or tortoise and aspires to own one should first and foremost research the specific species requirements. We have the info you need!

ADOPT, don't shop! Before you turn to Craigslist, or pet stores selling wild-caught animals,  connect with fellow turtle and tortoise owners about adoption and rehoming, via our Facebook Group.

We appreciate your donation!
