If you have an

Please read up on the care
requirements and if you are interested, submit an application and/or

The Kern County Chapter of
California Turtle and Tortoise Club is a non-profit 501-c organization
devoted to educating people on the health, care, maintenance and well
being of all turtles and tortoises.
light of our proximity to the Mojave Desert, our primary focus is of
course on the threatened Desert Tortoise
(Gopherus agassizii) and learning to keep it in the best simulation
possible of it's natural habitat. The club and its members
have a long term concern and commitment for these animals,
thus the creation of this website to bring exposure to the
organization, our cause and purpose.
members also have numerous other species of turtles and tortoises. We believe in the proper care of all animals and their species. Every
animal has the right to be treated with respect and kept in an environment
or habitat that is suitable for its living and survival needs.
By no means should any one information
system be the sole source for the care and maintenance of an animal. Several
sources should be used to help determine the most accurate and healthy way to
maintain a species.
information contained in the links to care sheets is, by group consensus, the
best information that is available at this time. Should you have any
questions or comments on information contained on our site, please feel free to
The care sheet presented via
the Desert Tortoise Care sheet we hand out in Kern County with adoptions.
