to Participate in the

Taricaya Turtle Release

January 2019

Treehouse Lodge Proudly Supports the Turtle Preservation Project in Peru

Taricaya were in abundance along the Amazon but due to development and logging their population has declined.
This project is a combined effort to help preserve the Taricaya and their place in the Amazonian ecosystem.
These turtles are found in tributaries and large lakes of South America’s Amazon Basin.
Their average life span is 60 to 70 years. It can grow up to 45 cm long and weigh up to 8 kg.
Taricaya can be recognized by a black or brown oval carapace with low keels on the second and third scutes.
Join us in January and you will get to release a baby turtle.
