World Chelonian Trust

The Mission of the World Chelonian Trust (WCT) is to promote the conservation and assure the survival of all tortoises and freshwater turtles. We will do this by actively supporting in-situ conservation efforts, field research and veterinary research. In addition to this we will provide information and guidance to individuals and organizations to further the successful maintenance and propagation of captive populations. We firmly believe that only by supporting both wild populations and captive propagation can we provide the maximum options for the survival of all Chelonian species.
