We are the Asian Turtle Program (ATP) of Indo Myanmar Conservation (IMC), a Vietnamese-based NGO registered in Vietnam and the UK.
ATP aims to establish a safe and sustainable future for Asian tortoises and freshwater turtles and ensure that no further turtle species become extinct in the region.
We are asking for your help to raise money for turtle conservation and education in Vietnam. Over the last few decades, ATP/IMC has been running an annual 'Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Field Skill Training Course' for young national biologists and conservationists in Vietnam and neighbouring countries.
The course has been successful and has seen many ex-students come into the conservation sector and do some excellent work. Unfortunately, one thing we have always missed is a comprehensive manual with practical guidance to give to students.
We have produced a field skill training manual for young conservationists and biologists, in two languages (to begin with), Vietnamese and English. Your donations are needed to help publish, print and distribute to those who need it in Vietnam.
By pledging money, you will help us to print and give one copy in Vietnamese which will be donated to local students, and if you choose, another copy in English to be delivered to you, wherever you are.
PLEASE NOTE: if you donate anonymously, we can't see your details and can't send you an English copy if you want one!
