Thank you for your support in my first campaign.

I am resuming this campaign as the money raised is still insufficient towards the build up of my Turtles' new home. I hope you can help further.


Below are my content from my first campaign:

My turtles will have to move home very soon due to our Singapore government needing to develop the Western part of our island and rebuilding a better home for them is the utmost important thing right now.

There are 2 options for location availability with different costs implications. However, no matter the cost - we will probably not have enough money to pay for the rebuilding of the turtles' home.

My dad and I started this museum with Community Service Responsibility efforts by showcasing our pets to the world about 18 years ago. Since the launch of The Live Turtles and Tortoise Museum, many Singaporeans and visitors got to see the extensive collection, which we hold the Guinness Book of World Records title, at Singapore Chinese Garden. Our love for the long-lived reptiles pushed us to continue to give them a shelter so that people can continue to learn about the amazing creatures.

The small fee we have been collecting to serve this to community by keeping the entrance fees very low, merely covers the overheads / operations cost over and nothing towards savings to rebuild another home for the turtles. Though my dad and I started this together, his part, his legacy that he has left behind, I am left with the responsibility to keep it going....

I started this fund collection to ensure smooth transition to the turtles new home and the fund collection will cease once the estimated cost is reached.

  • Please consider Pulau Kusu or Kusu Island, it is a beautiful Island. They can survive and be free to run around.

Shaped By Neglect

Update posted by Randy Nonis at 10:11 am

As the Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum continues its struggle to build new homes for abandoned reptiles, this past week posed a serious heartache for the team as this severely neglected & malnourished Soft - Shelled Turtle was brought to us.Dumped in a plastic container no larger than the poor. . . . .
