Turtles Home to Build 2018

Update posted by Randy Nonis On Oct 28, 2018

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 turtle, its shell was deformed beyond recognition with its soft limbs and fats literally resembling jelly. There was absolutely zero muscular strength in this specimen which probably suffered from a life time of neglect & poor husbandry.

While taken aback with sadness over this completely preventable situation, we'd like to take this time to reinforce that owing a pet is a responsibility for life. Their entire world depends on your ability to provide & care for them from the moment it is purchased until it's passing. Do not impulse purchase these animals only to neglect them.

And while we wept over the past few days, this case has only strengthened our resolve to continue our fight as a sanctuary for abandoned turtles & tortoises. We hope that you will walk this journey with us by funding our campaign so we can help prevent future cases like this through educational programs & by building a better home for these animals which are left on our doorstep.

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