Terrapin Adoption Programme

Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia carries out two river terrapin conservation projects in the Setiu and Kemaman Rivers, Terengganu. Through these projects and with the collaboration with the local communities, a maximum number of river terrapin eggs are secured for incubation. Upon emergence, some river terrapin hatchlings are released immediately while the remaining hatchlings are raised for approximately six to ten months before they are also released into the respective rivers.

As part of our fund-raising efforts, we are putting up these river terrapins for adoption*. Each terrapin adoption costs RM30 (or US$10), and you will be furnished with a personalized Certificate of Adoption. You are also encouraged to name your adopted terrapin(s)! All funds raised through the Terrapin Adoption Programme will be used to carry out river terrapin conservation projects in the future.

For more info, please visit our website: Terrapin Adoption Programme. Should you have any questions regarding our Terrapin Adoption Programme, please feel free to email us at contactus@turtleconservationsociety.org.my.

*Note: Our “Terrapin Adoption Programme” is a symbolic gesture in an effort to raise funds for turtle conservation in Malaysia. Adopters do NOT get to bring home a terrapin. And at the end of the day, ALL terrapins will be released into the Kemaman River, regardless of whether they get “adopted.” 🙂
