Sponsor a Tortoise / Turtle

What is a Tortoise / Turtle Sponsorship

Our adoptions/sponsorships are a virtual way for you to support the Ashton Biological Preserve's Ambassador animals. This means everyone has the option to adopt/sponsor the same animal or group of animals. They are animals that we care for and monitor as part of an ongoing conservation project, as well as, educational outreach programs. None of these animals are for sale, nor will they be shipped anywhere outside of the Reserve.
