Forsten's Tortoise

Sulawesi

Combined with severe habitat destruction and current and historic collection for pet and bushmeat trades, these species could be facing extinction. In progress are population surveys to accurately determine distribution to inform the need for possible status updates and increased protection. The project initiates community-based species monitoring programs tracking daily activity, foraging, nesting, and reproductive behaviors and determine the ecological requirements of the species.
