Cantor’s Giant Soft-shell Turtle Was Rediscovered in Kratie Province

Cantor’s Giant Soft-shell Turtle was thought to be extinct in the Cambodian Mekong until it was rediscovered in 2007. The new population was found in Kratie province. The hatchlings are gathered from natural nests along the river, then kept in indoors for 10 months before being released back into the wild. The community-led protection program is expected to increase hatchling survival rates.
