Firmus Graeca (Epidemiological Diagnosis of the Tortoise)

firmus graeca

At the FIEB Research Center, the Center for Epidemiological Diagnosis of the tortoise (Testudo graeca) has been created.
With this project, FIEB starts a comprehensive study of the health status of the captive population compared with the health of the free population in order to gather the information needed to make a decision tree about the fate of the captive animals.

The project is a small step that can contribute to a conservation strategy for the species embracing both populations, the ex situ and in situ.

 

For this project, FIEB has the support and collaboration of the Ministry of Environment of the Region of Murcia and the Center for Wildlife Recovery “El Valle”.
