Welcome to the EMYSystem.

The EMYSystem is an information repository supporting global turtle conservation. Our goal is to collect and provide current and historical data about turtle locations, and to help maintain the variety of turtles as part of the world's biodiversity.

Unique to this site is our searchable World Turtle Database, where you can find more information about where various turtle species have been found.

Google no longer supports Google Earth inside web pages. We have switched to Google Maps.

We are now supported, in part, by the Turtle Conservancy and the John L. Behler Chelonian Center.
