Rescued tortoises from Odukpani Local Government Area, Cross River State, Nigeria. These particular species are known to be endangered species as they are very rear to find due to the high rate of hunting and killing, bushmeat consumption, preparation of love portions. So in BPC (Biodiversity Preservation Center), we decided to build a tortoise rehabilitation facility in order to conserve them, because looking at the current situation, if we release these tortoises back to the wild, those hunters will still hunt and kill them again.
