We wanted to bring everyone up to speed on what is going on at the Behler Chelonian Center ("BCC") as of June 2013. If you recall we recently provided the BCC with an Ibex Ultrasound that was purchased through the donation from Patagonia. Our company then provided a pair of goggles to be used by the BCC along with their system. We were excited to see this image as provided by the conservancy in their newsletter.
“We are honored to have our company partner with the Turtle Conservancy to continue their research and their work in protecting the most endangered turtles and tortoises and their habitats worldwide,” said EIMI President, Chas Maloy. “We consider it our company’s social responsibility to assist these nonprofits in doing this most important work.” EIMI is very thankful for the Turtle Conservancy and their continued hard work in saving endangered turtles all over the world.
About the Turtle Conservancy and the Behler Chelonian Center
The Turtle Conservancy is chartered in California, as a nonprofit scientific and educational organization "for the conservation of turtles and tortoises around the world." Since 2005 the Conservancy has supported a highly successful breeding program at the Behler Chelonian Center along with many other in situ research projects, adding to knowledge of chelonians. Turtle Conservancy Headquarters is located in New York City. The Behler Chelonian Center is located in southern California: the Mediterranean climate is ideal for raising turtles and tortoises.
