Today (July 25 2015) we released 20 more western swamp tortoises at a nature reserve in the Swan Valley. These were animals bred at Perth Zoo and many Friends and other interested citizens gathered to 'launch' them into the swamp that will be their home. More pictures available in our Photo Galleries or on our Facebook page.
