New Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Field Skill Training Manual

Over the last few decades, the Asian Turtle Program of Indo Myanmar Conservation 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 very successful, with many participants progressing to work in conservation and doing some excellent work. We have always wanted to make our training materials available after the course and to a wider audience, the comprehensive training manual with practical guidance was developed back in 2014, and while we have some generous support to start the printing process we still need to raise more to allow us to reach more students.

The Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Field Skills Training Manual has been written 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. The training manual will also be made available online completely free in PDF form for both languages. If enough support can be raised we hope to also translate this resource to make it available for free as a PDF in other local languages.

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.
