Adopt To Save Terrapin

  • By on September 16, 2009 | 3 Comments

    Today I am going to blog something green about our world. Do you know what is Terrapin? A Terrapin is an animal that splits its time between land and water. Usually terrapins live near the water, but they can survive in or out of the water.

    Terrapin was a critical-endangered species but not protected yet in National Wildlife Act.

    One of my blogger friend Pelf was an activist with a mission to save the turtle in Malaysia 😀

    Lately she was involved with the Adopt A Terrapin project where 100 of Terrapin was released in Setiu River on 09-09-09.

    So how does this adoption works? No worry, Pelf will not put Terrapin into a box and send the Terrapin via Pos Laju to your home and let you pet it 😀

    Instead Pelf and the fellow activist will release the Terrapin into the river.

    But before that, these Terrapin will be equipped with microchip for the unique identification and monitoring 😀

    Mr. Malik and his Fisherman Friends said if he capture any adopted Terrapin, he will send back those Terrapin back to Turtle Conservation Center for processing.

    Again no worry, the processing was measure the new weight, shell length and width of the Terrapin for research purpose 😀

    Free, free and free the Terrapin 😉

    For more information of the Terrapin adoption, please surf to Support Us Turtle Conservation Center and you can can all the details. The process was real easy and I just sent the fund via online banking.

    Though I just adopt as little as one terrapin, I hope my sharing today can create viral awareness to people who have love to nature in heart 😉

    I believe conservation should be a repetitive action so let’s save the Terrapin now, tomorrow and the future.

    Catch up the full story by visiting to Terrapin Independence Day 😀
