Tortoise Talk
Tortoise Acres Mobile Education & Adoption Center.
We are excited to show you our new trailer we are buying. It is priced at $5,000 but they are offering it to us for $1500. This will be used to take the tortoises to schools, events and evacuations. We need donations to help pay for it. We also need donations to purchase Plexiglas and wood to finish the enclosures inside. 

Cool things happening with our turtles & tortoises. Check back often to see updates and pictures.
