Help save turtles: Tell Congress to fund turtle conservation

Turtles have walked the Earth for about 220 million years and once lived alongside the dinosaurs. But today, half of all turtle and tortoise species are threatened with extinction. The U.S. can help save these magnificent creatures, but only if Congress continues its support for international conservation programs.

Help us make sure that lawmakers know what's at stake and urge them to take immediate action by sending a letter to your members of Congress.

Congress has the power to ensure a future for turtles, tigers, elephants and other threatened species – but they need to hear from as many of us as possible. Make sure your lawmakers get the message today.
