On the 8th of November Victor Loehr and I attend the annual conference of the Tortoise Welfare UK at Colchester Zoo were we were invited to talk about the ESF in general and about the Homopus studbooks. The Tortoise Welfare UK is a British non-profit and professional organisation working to improve tortoise welfare standards in the UK. The UK has a rich history in keeping tortoises and the conference was attended by about 120 mainly tortoise enthusiasts but also Zoo staff and veterinarians were participating.
