This site is dedicated to the captive care, propagation and conservation of turtles and tortoises. The captive propagationis an important part of the conservation process.Animals that are captive bred reduce and can eliminate the need to collect animals in the wild. This site owned and maintained by individuals who have a passion for conservation and the quality care of turtles and tortoises. We are not a large scale breeder, but hobbyistwho hope to share their passion and in the future we hope offspring from our collection.
