Arco Nepal is a conservation organisation that helps to protect the herpetofauna of Nepal.
Nepal is an unique country with a lot of endangered species. Especially turtles and tortoises are in great risk of decline and even extinction.
The loss of habitat and the illegal trade as well as poaching has driven some species on the verge.
At this moment a lot of effort and funds are needed to further realise the breeding station currently under construction in Nepal, which is especially built to breed the most endangered types of turtle and tortoise and rear them to health so they can be set free in their natural habitat.
We’ll be following their work and support it where we can.
