This appeal is important for reasons!
Please help us to remove the Punk Butt Breathing Turtle from the unlucky club – EDGE (Evolutionary Distinct & Globally Endangered). Just last week The Mary River Turtle was listed in the top 30 most vulnerable reptile species on the planet compiled by the Zoological Society of London.
The Mary River Turtle only lives in the Mary River, Queensland, Australia. Since the 1970s, the population of nesting females at Tiaro has plummeted by 95%.
Our hope is that with your donation we can increase the survival chances of this endangered turtle. Your donation will be used for nest protection to increase the hatchling population (15 eggs is the average number in a wild laid clutch) as well as supporting research to ensure the survival of this unique species.
Please donate and help us save this rare bum-breathing turtle. All donations will be directed towards turtle conservation and research.
