This popular event is now in it’s 13th year. Organised by the Cheshire Group of the British Chelonia Group (BCG), the event emphasizes the educational and veterinary aspects of chelonia keeping and is open to all tortoise keepers, vets, zoo keepers, conservation professionals and families.
Here you can learn about and share chelonian experiences with experts from the BCG on hand to offer advice and help. Veterinary support on the day will be from Aidan Raftery along with vets and staff from the Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic, Manchester. They will also provide an identification micro chipping service using mini chips.
Visitors to the event will see various exhibits. This year Cheshire Active Naturalists will display natural history specimens plus live invertebrates. Also attending are the Macclesfield Branch of the British Cactus and Succulent Society who will have cacti for sale and offer advice on growing these plants. Light refreshments will be available throughout the event.
Funds raised on the day support BCG tortoise, terrapin and turtle care and conservation worldwide. If you are unable to join us on May 17th, but would like further information on joining the British Chelonia Group, visit website http://www.britishcheloniagroup.org.uk
