Donate now to save this gorgeous and endangered little creature

The Manning River helmeted turtle was declared an endangered species in 2017, when the rapid decline of populations rang alarm bells among scientists and herpetologists.

Population surveys have been and are continuing to be conducted by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH), as the engaging little reptile is listed as ‘data deficient’ under the Saving our Species program – meaning not enough is known about them.

The Manning River Turtle Conservation Group is working with OEH, the Australian Reptile Park and Aussie Ark, and other stakeholders, to help save the Manning River helmeted turtle.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The Manning River Turtle Conservation Group has been working to raise awareness and educate the local community on the little-known turtle. Plans are underway and facilities under construction for a breeding program of an insurance population at the Australian Reptile Park, in partnership with Aussie Ark. 

The group’s future plans to help save the turtle include potential citizen-science projects, such as Waterwatch.

Please donate today to support efforts to conserve this important species.

Funds raised will help support the Manning River Turtle Conservation Group’s work in the conservation of the Manning River helmeted turtle.
