Madagascan Tortoises in Trouble
The Turtle Survival Alliance (TSA), in collaboration with The Orianne Society (TOS), hired noted South Africa-based wildlife film makers Moz Images to cover the rapidly worsening crisis with Madagascar’s Radiated Tortoise.
The film crew of Chris Scarfe and Aaron Gekoski accompanied Rick Hudson and Christina Castellano to Madagascar in September 2011 and the resulting short film - Tortoises in Trouble - tracks a group of 140 confiscated Radiated Tortoises from the captital city of Antanananrivo to their homeland in the south where they are repatriated to a sacred protected forest near the village of Ampotoka.
