Sponsor to take care of Star Tortoise
They may be small – maybe that’s why nobody notices them on our sponsorship site! They may not be furry or cuddly but they are beautiful and highly endangered as a species. Our star tortoises are in a new enclosure having been rescued from poachers planning to use them for their meat and other body parts which are often exported to China for use in so-called medicinal remedies.
Star Tortoises are nearing extinction, which is why their preservation at VSPCA and elsewhere is critically important. Can you help by sponsoring these beautiful creatures?
