May I ask you please take a moment of your time to view the video opposite & kindly read the below

The Tortoise Protection Group is a non-profit organisation founded in 2007 and is run by a group of voluteers, dedicated to helping ensure the survival of tortoises in the wild and to promote high standards of husbandry to tortoise keepers.

My primary reason for joining this group was to promote the TPG campaign and aims. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as it is a very good cause.

Illegal tortoise trade is happening in Britain” (DEFRA, 2004).

An estimated 10 million tortoises were shipped into the UK for the pet trade between 1890 and 1984 before the initial ban was introduced. This trade is back! … and tortoises are being imported in substantial numbers. However, DEFRA are failing to prevent this illegal trade and are in fact licensing it. These tortoises go through untold misery and often arrive here with chronic worm infestations and dehydrated, which far too often contributes to their early demise.

Please take a moment to sign our petition:-

Please visit our website to learn more about our work:-

Although my main concern to join this group was to promote the TPG petition, joining has really opened my eyes to the thousands of animal welfare concerns.

Lastly if you are a friend of the animals and/or believe that everyone should live by certain values and respect one another, please feel free to request me as a friend:-)

Kind Regards
Tortoise Protection Group
