FROM POACHERS TO PROTECTORS
Tracking the critically endangered Southern River Terrapin through eDNA
Tracking the Movements of a Post-Nesting River Terrapin
This project aims to provide a record and assessment of the current nesting density and conservation status of river terrapins in Terengganu, and to elucidate major threats to the species in the different river systems. We also aimed to involve and engage local communities in conserving the river terrapins.
Turtle Discovery Trip
Our one-day Turtle Discovery Trips are designed to give our guests a first-in-a-lifetime experience. By joining us, you will learn about turtles and turtle conservation efforts in Malaysia as well as get up-close with the critically endangered turtles!
Nature Discovery Trip
Back by popular demand! This 3D2N Nature Discovery Trip is perfect for school-going children and their parents, as well as corporate companies seeking to contribute to the environment. Participants will not only learn about turtles, fireflies and mangroves, you will also get to do a beach clean up, plant some mangroves and watch fireflies in the river!
Terrapin Independence Day
We have been invited to give talks and conduct workshops with school students. We are based in Kemaman, Terengganu, but we will try out best to accommodate your schedule. If you would like us to specifically cover certain topics related to the environment, we would gladly oblige too.
MAKE A DONATION
Support the Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia (TCS) in restoring depleted wild populations of freshwater turtles in the country. As a non-governmental organisation, we are constantly raising funds to support the increasing number of research, conservation and educational projects that the Society takes on. Your tax-deductible donations enable us to help save the critically endangered turtles in Malaysia.
INTERNSHIP & VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
If you are a graduate or undergraduate looking to gain hands-on experience doing conservation-related work in a non-profit in Malaysia, we offer internships that allow you to get a feel of what it is like working in conservation. As an intern, you will get exposure to real projects (managing wildlife and people) and gain real world experience. You will have the opportunity to learn new skills (writing, public speaking, fundraising, marketing, etc.), to see your projects go from start to finish, and yes, you are allowed to make mistakes!
