About Australian Freshwater Turtle Conservation and Research Association

The Australian Freshwater Turtle Conservation and Research Association (AFTCRA Inc.) is a Non-Profit Organisation. Our Mission is to protect all Australian freshwater turtles and to prevent extinction by ensuring sustainable populations can and do exist in the wild.

Why Freshwater Turtles?
As you may be aware, the scientific community and conservationists have been protecting the well being of marine turtles for many years. The dilemma is that many of the same threats to their survival have been identified to impact upon freshwater turtles as well.
Almost 43% of the world’s freshwater turtles and tortoises are listed as THREATENED in the 2004 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Many new Australian species will be included on the Threatened Species list the moment they are described by science.


Strategy Statement
Our purpose is to undertake, promote and fund research projects for all Australian freshwater turtle species as necessary. This research will include field studies, protection and management of wild populations and development of recovery plans and ex-situ breeding programs. We will form alliances with other wildlife conservation organisations and establish centres for conservation, research and education.

What Can You Do?
Your support will enable us to conduct field research, monitor water quality, improve habitat conditions, purchase vital equipment and promote awareness through education.
