The TTPG was founded by Russ Gurley in 1996 to help spread the horrible news: The world's turtles are disappearing. Across the planet there are a variety of pressures facing the world's turtles including habitat destruction, habitat fragmentation, collection for food and folk remedies, collection for the pet trade, and many more. Each year, turtle and tortoise keepers are having more and more successes with keeping their chelonians healthy and in creative enclosures and they are producing healthy captive-hatched specimens that are living stress-free and parasite-free in homes all over the world. These pets are ambassadors for their cousins, living in nature. The TTPG is happy to be involved with the dissemination of information about the world's turtles and tortoises and their proper care through talks at herpetological societies, Turtle Night at the National Reptile Breeders Expo, the TTPG Conference in Phoenix Reptile Expo, and through books, articles, care sheets, and this website. We have been the proud hosts of Turtle Night at the National Reptile Breeders Expo for ten years and we hope you will join us for this year's Turtle Night, one of the top turtle events of the summer. At each Turtle Night, attendees hear a wide range of chelonian topics devoted to captive care and captive breeding. We are very excited about the first annual TTPG Conference on Captive Care and Breeding. This Conference will take place on November 18th and 19th, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona. We are currently confirming at least fifteen speakers from around the United States and internationally. This will be the first chelonian conference devoted solely to keeping and breeding turtles and tortoises in captivity. We hope to see you there. Enjoy our website and I hope you will choose to become a member and to share in our work!.
