The Photographic Guide to the Freshwater Turtles and Tortoises of Myanmar

The conservation of Myanmar’s unique and diverse turtle fauna has a high priority and the Myanmar Forestry Department has long collaborated with the Myanmar Program of Wildlife Conservation Society and Turtle Survival Alliance. One outcome of this collaboration is this photographic identification guide to the freshwater turtles and tortoises of Myanmar. This photographic guide book is timely, and will prove a useful and essential book for those people working together to save Myanmar turtles from extinction. Customs and police personnel who work at border check points, field researchers, students, hobbyists, and the person who just wants to know more about Myanmar’s turtles will all find it very useful.
