Palawan Turtle Crisis

Leytensis feeling better


This collaborative effort involved many turtle groups and conservation organizations working together, not the least of which includes the Katala Foundation, Inc. a non-profit and non-governmental organization active in protecting and conserving wildlife. The Katala Foundation has been engaged in conservation efforts for Philippine forest turtle since 2007. Thus far captive breeding has not yet been successful due to its high sensitivity to stress.

Shown here, this Siebenrockiella leytensis is feeling better!
