Distribution maps of the freshwater turtles of the world

With this initiative BioFresh brings together distribution maps in GIS format (mapped to HydroBASINS) for all the 270 freshwater turtle species of the world. Given the extremely high level of threat to this taxonomic group, a global map of distributions for all species, incorporating available point locality data, will represent a highly valuable conservation tool to identify populations and areas for priority conservation action.

Responsible: Will Darwall (IUCN)
