Weʼre raising £180,000 to Buy a new piece of land for our turtle sanctuary in Kent

Staplehurst, Kent

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


We are a  non-profit rescue & sanctuary. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, shelter and house any turtle that comes our way.

The problem we now have is that we have to find a larger piece of land to enable us to continue our work. These lovely creatures were bought as pets and when they became too large people simply dump them in rivers and ponds. Unfortunately as they are considered an evasive species if they are caught they are destroyed. It is not the fault of these turtles that they are seen this way it is the fault of the people that sell them and buy them, without regard to their future.

We provide a loving home with proper care, plenty of food, spacious dry/aquatic habitat for happy living conditions for their remaining lives. Based in Staplehurst in Kent we are a non-profit rescue & sanctuary centre. We currently have some 1,500 terrapins including; soft shelled, snake necks, musks, red-eared sliders, yellow-belly sliders and side necks. Some are also disabled. We also hold a Natural England Invasive Alien Species Licence to legally take in all slider species.
