Tortoises in Trouble
The Turtle Survival Alliance, in collaboration with The Orianne Society, cover the rapidly worsening crisis with Madagascar's Radiated Tortoise.

Radiated tortoise numbers have plummeted by 50% in the last decade alone. Tortoise meat, being consumed as a luxury item, is a major factor in tortoise numbers declining. Tortoises could soon become extinct.
