A quiet summer

These tortoises have their own personal chef!

Dear Desert Tortoise Supporters,

We last reported on two tiny tortoises that hatched in our breeding group. We are pleased to report that they are thriving – although they won’t grow much bigger as this is the smallest species of tortoise in the world.

Currently, Testudo werneri has a national Israel Red List status of Endangered and in 2003 it qualified globally for listing as Critically Endangered under current IUCN Red List Criteria.

Our breeding group is housed in the Small Animal Exhibit at the Zoo where visitors can learn more about local Israeli species and the Zoo’s effort to protect and conserve them.

Yours, in hope -

Team Tortoise at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo
