Please accept my sincere apologies for posting this message on this
forum but it is important I reach as many communities that might even
remotely cross tracks with this particular theft. Thank you for your understanding.
During the evening of Wednesday 19, January 2000, 161 baby tortoises
(46 Geochelone radiata and 118 Aldabrachelys gigantea) were stolen from
La Vanille Crocodile Park. AlI were bred and hatched at La Vanille
Crocodile Park in 1998 and 1999. These tortoises were destined in a
large part for conservation projects in Mauritius and Rodrigues, These
tortoises are protected under the CITES Convention.
