New poster highlights threats and conservation needs for the endemic Vietnamese Pond Turtle (Mauremys annamensis) in Central Vietnam.

The poster highlights the protected status and conservation threats of the endemic Vietnamese Pond Turtle (Mauremys annamensis) in Central Vietnam. Despite being fully protected under national law the species has suffered a dramatic decline throughout its range from both the loss of lowland wetland habitat and extreme collection pressure for the illegal wildlife trade. The species is now a priority for conservation activities by the Asian Turtle Program (ATP).

The new poster printed in July is already being distributed thought the species historic range in central Vietnamese lowland provinces from Da Nang south into Phu Yen.

This resource was developed by the Asian Turtle Program (ATP) of Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and Education for Nature Vietnam (ENV). Support was provided by the Turtle Conservation Fund (TCF).
