Faunawatch to rescue tortoises as well as turtles
The schildpaddenopvang (turtle refuge) located at Faunawatch on Vijverdalseweg will also offer a haven to the tortoises from now on. Previously, there was only a place for those animals that live in the water.
In addition to the refuge principle, Faunawatch is also acting for educational reasons. The organisation wants to show how to take care of different types of turtle and tortoise.
Faunawatch is finding more and more turtles and tortoises, that are dumped into nature and slowly starve to death. This Sunday, Faunawatch will hold an open day at the turtle and tortoise sanctuary.
