Radiated
Tortoises
Need Your Help!!
On Tuesday, April 10, more than 10,000 critically endangered Radiated Tortoises (Astrochelys radiata) were discovered by local police in a non-descript private residence in Toliara, Madagascar. The floors of virtually every room in the house were covered with tortoises that had no access to food or water. As of Friday, April 13, hundreds had died from dehydration and illness. Experts from the Turtle Survival Alliance (TSA) and several zoos and aquariums have been dispatched with medical supplies, and will administer medical care for the sick or injured tortoises and general animal care.

Please donate to the TSA to assist in this huge rescue effort. AZVT will match each dollar donated up to $5,000!
