The Turtle Survival Alliance Makes Impressive Headway On The Incredible Task At Hand
The excitement continues as TSA staff and their partners labor tirelessly in a race to save the remaining approximately 10,000 Astrochelys radiata which were confiscated just this past week. A seemingly insurmountable task, the team has proven their resilience through the dedication and commitment shown through this project of epic proportions. They will not be left alone, however. Throughout the proceeding weeks, multiple groups of specialists as well as volunteers will be making the lengthy trek across the world to the country of Madagascar, which is already well known for it’s numerous species on the verge or already to the status of extinction. All this would not be attainable without the mind-blowing support in the form of numerous donations which have already been given and continue to flow in. The Turtle Survival Alliance is giving their all in this vital rescue effort and they desperately need the assistance of additional volunteers as well as donations to purchase supplies and pay for travel expenses. Such a valiant mission is surely well worth supporting.
