About the TSA – The Turtle Survival Alliance (TSA) is the only conservation NGO committed solely to turtle conservation, and operates under a singular, overarching commitment: zero turtle extinctions in the 21st century. Since its formation, the TSA has become recognized as a global force for turtle conservation, capable of taking swift and decisive action on behalf of critically endangered chelonians. Although the TSA was organized in response to the Asian Turtle Crisis, the group is well positioned to respond to other endangered turtle species, particularly where a managed breeding component is included in their overall survival strategy.
