Restoring the Burmese Roofed Turtle to the Chindwin River in Myanmar
2019 - 2021
The wild population of Burmese Roofed Turtles currently consists of no more than seven adult females. The grantee will rear two cohorts of head-started offspring, each comprising 60-80 hatchlings, and release these into the wild, significantly bolstering the wild population. Second, the 100 captive-bred Burmese Roofed Turtles the grantee proposes to release will immediately augment the wild breeding population.
This project is implemented by Turtle Survival Alliance.
