On May 23rd, the Turtle Conservancy celebrated World Turtle Day by launching a public awareness and fundraising campaign inspired by the recent UN report on global biodiversity. The report argued that one million of Earth’s species are at risk of extinction due to human-caused activities. The Turtle Conservancy is working to protect biodiversity through habitat conservation, research and global awareness.
Thank you to all of our supporters who posted on our behalf, tagged us, and donated to us so far. We are thrilled to report we have reached over 100,000 followers on Instagram—a 20% increase in just one week—and we look forward to promoting the wonder of turtles and inspiring turtle conservation across the planet.
Our campaign continues through the month of June, if you haven’t donated or signed up to become a Turtle Conservancy member, please do so today! Every dollar donated goes directly towards supporting habitat land acquisition and management and care for the turtles and tortoises at our conservation center.
