About

Geometric tortoises are critically endangered but how do you research and protect a creature that is notoriously shy and expertly camouflaged? A breakthrough project with detection dogs is helping CapeNature find this elusive tortoise. Join us for a talk by Vicki Hudson as she reveals how dogs are being used to scent out these tortoises and what this means for the conservation of the geometric tortoise in the Cape.

Cape Union Mart and Wild have partnered to bring you talks on the great outdoors and conservation issues. Talks include refreshments and discounted shopping at Cape Union Mart.
