Donating to TCS means supporting the first and only turtle conservation NGO in the country to save our freshwater turtles. A sense of identity and belonging for former poachers. Economic development and new opportunities for the womenfolk. Education and awareness programmes for the children. Your financial help makes all these happen, and more.

Give where the need is greatest

Every terrapin egg we’re able to buy is a hatchling we’re able to save.
With your help, we can save more turtles,
empower more women and
educate more children
We’re proud to have released more than 3,000 river terrapins into the Kemaman River. Local villagers now frequently see terrapin heads popping up in the river, something they had not seen before we initiated this project.

We empower the local womenfolk by catering with them and ordering fabric products from them. Your donations train future women entrepreneurs and strengthen local economies.

Our children may constitute only 30% of our population today, but they are 100% of our future. Give the gift of education today because they are our future leaders, researchers and conservationists, and policy makers.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes, all donations are tax-deductible in Malaysia. We will issue you an official receipt for this purpose.
My tax agent can't find TCS in the list of tax-deductible organisations!
Go to this page on the Inland Revenue Board website, and type “tuntung” in the search box. The search result will return our official Malay name, Persatuan Pemuliharaan Tuntung, Kura-Kura dan Penyu Malaysia.
But I don't have a PayPal account!
That’s OK, you don’t need to have a PayPal account to make a donation. Click the DONATE button anyway, and you may choose to donate via credit card.
Can I make a bank transfer instead?

In-Kind Contributions:
We love gifts of all-year commercially-available pellets, vegetables, insurance for our Terrapin Guardians, etc. But saving us money is (almost) as good as giving us cash.
