We are a registered 501 (C) (3) non profit organization devoted to the conservation and study of Texas turtles through research, the study of turtles in the wild and outreach education
Texas can boast a high turtle diversity with three species that naturally occur only here and no where else. In fact Texas is home to almost half of the turtle diversity in the United States! Texas also has a rapidly growing population and it is more important now than ever to educate people young and old about these animals, their interesting behaviors, priceless value of their presence in the wild, and the challenges that threaten their very existence.
