Adopt a terrapin today!

Adopt a terrapin today!

A big THANK YOU to many of you who have symbolically adopted a terrapin (or two)! All thee river terrapins will be released on 30th September, and we’re using this opportunity to raise funds to sustain our annual conservation project.

Your donation will be used to kickstart the river terrapin conservation project in 2018. Funds will be used to pay the local villagers an allowance for camping out on the river bank to collect terrapin eggs for incubation, maintenance of the hatchery and to purchase pellets and vegetables to feed the terrapins.

We need your help, we cannot do this ourselves. We would be most grateful if you would symbolically adopt a terrapin to support our conservation efforts. Each terrapin adoption costs RM35, and all adoptions are tax-deductible. To support us, head over to this page and fill up the terrapin adoption form!
