Thank you so much for your assistance with this urgent matter. An additional 1,200 tortoises are slated for another "translocation" in the near future. Until humane, solid plans to protect these threatened animals is implemented, we've got to keep further translocation efforts from taking place.

Please post this petition everywhere. This species is in grave danger.
