Taricaya Ecoreserve campaigns every year to protect an important species of river turtle which is growing increasingly scarce in the Amazon basin. Last year due to the efforts of many people who donated their time and support we were able to collect 52 turtle nests, preventing them from being sold for food, and in November 2022 we released over 1000 baby turtles into the lower Madre de Dios river. This is a small fraction of the quantity of turtles which would naturally hatch each year to maintain the population if there were no human impact. These turtles are suffering due to human impact and habitat loss so it is very important that we continue to protect this species and their ecosystem. There is no government funding for conservation, so we rely on donations and our volunteer program to support the project.

Please donate and share to help us find more turtle nests this summer
