Jeremy Thompson is the founder of The Kinixys Cooperative. TKC exists to preserve Kinixys in captivity by collaborating to produce healthy genetically diverse captive-born offspring and to conserve them in their native ranges to the best of their ability by assisting in research and contributing donations. In this episode, Jeremy lays out the framework for establishing a preservation/conservation-focused organization within the private sector. We discuss what drew him to the Kinixys genera, how two trips to South Africa changed his life, how to keep Kinixys, and more!
