THE STORY:

You Can Help Save This Species.

More than half of the turtle and tortoises species left on the earth are threatened with extinction. One of the most threatened is the stunning Ploughshare Tortoise of Madagascar. This beautiful animal is being illegally poached for the pet trade. See our photo of live babies wrapped in cellophane while being smuggled. Help keep these babies in the wild where they belong by supporting this cause.

We will mark these animals to protect their lives and keep them out of the illegal pet trade.

We need engraving tools for the larger animals and tattooing supplies for the smaller tortoises in Madagascar. We also need some technological equipment for monitoring and tracking. All of this work is to put an end to the illegal poaching of these animals.

Like us on Facebook while checking out the NPR story posted on March 23, 2014 about our global tortoise marking project.

If you give $100.00 or more we will make you an annual member of the Turtle Conservancy and with your mailing address we will send you a current copy of our magazine, The Tortoise.
