Save and Protect Turtles and Giant Tortoise's

Summary

On our Island in the Seychelles is the home to the largest populations of Aldabra giant tortoise outside of Aldabra Atoll. These slow animals are essential to our wildlife and environment but struggle to out run poachers. Turtles and Tortoise new hatchlings found on the Island are relocated to safe locations to survive the wild, we tag and protect them and find them when they are in need of support. This is all done with the support of your donations!

Challenge

Continued monitoring and tagging of free ranging and hatchling tortoises is essential to the survival and growth of the population on Curieuse. Without regular supplies of electronic tags and tag scanners the project would not be able to continue.

Solution

Purchase of further electronic tags and tag scanners will allow the continuation of the project.

Long-Term Impact

Increase of the Aldabra giant tortoise population on Curieuse Island back to historically natural levels. The tortoises are a major attraction for visitors to the island, all of whom pay a landing fee. This fee significantly contributes to the economy of the Seychelles and partly funds the Seychelles National Parks Authority in their efforts to sustainably manage the island.
