Formerly, our conservation training is focused on the people and students near the habitat of Painted Terrapin and turtles in general. We visit the village hall to meet and teach the fishermen, visit schools to teach the students, or people and students visit us in the terrapin conservation facility (PTIC). It aims to increase their knowledge and skills to save the terrapin and its habitat. It helps us in our effort to restore the wild population. Thousands of people have reached by these methods.
However, due to the increasing demands by the general public outside the habitat, collaborating with local universities, we held the conservation talks such as webinars for university students and groups.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if your university, school, or group wants to collaborate with us to hold conservation talks such as webinars!

In addition, we hold regular conservation training for people who are interested in conservation. It does not matter if you are not a professional conservationist, if you are a student who wants to build a career in wildlife conservation, if you are just a conservationist enthusiast, or if you are working in the conservation department in a company, this training will be fit for you.
This training will be held on the online platform. The course will be in Bahasa Indonesia. However, in a special case, a certain subject will be delivered in English if the instructor is a foreign expert on a particular subject.
The participants will get an electronic module (in pdf or office), discuss the case studies through zoom or google meetings with other participants and instructors, homework to be finished by participants, and examination at the end of the program. Every participant will get a certificate for completing the training.
