Upon emergence

all river terrapin hatchlings are marked, weighed and measured.

Then, the hatchlings are

raised at the hatchery. Your symbolic adoption allows us to hire a local villager from Kg. Pasir Gajah to perform a complete water change and to feed the terrapin hatchlings daily. He is tasked to clean the head-starting tank too.

Once a year,

the head-started terrapins are released into the Kemaman River, in our attempt to repopulate the river. You are invited to release your own adopted terrapins, but if you can’t make it, don’t worry, we will release them on your behalf.
ADOPT A TERRAPIN
Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia (TCS) carries out a River Terrapin Conservation Project in the Kemaman River, Terengganu. Through this project and with the collaboration with the local communities, a maximum number of river terrapin eggs are secured for incubation. Upon emergence, the river terrapin hatchlings are raised for approximately four to five months before they are also released into the river.
Every year, as part of our fund-raising efforts, we put up our river terrapins for adoption*. Each terrapin adoption costs RM35 (or US$10), and you will be furnished with an official tax-deductible receipt and a personalized Certificate of Adoption. You are also encouraged to name your adopted terrapin(s)! All funds raised through the Terrapin Adoption Programme will be used to carry out river terrapin conservation projects in the future.
To participate in our Terrapin Adoption Programme, please:

Note: Our “Terrapin Adoption Programme” is a symbolic gesture in an effort to raise funds for turtle conservation in Malaysia. Adopters do NOT get to bring home a terrapin. And at the end of the day, ALL terrapins will be released into the river, regardless of whether they get “adopted.” :)
