• SEKILAS FAKTA • Kura kura Yniphora (Geochelone yniphora) berasal dari Madagascar, termasuk kura yang terancam kepunahan diakibatkan perburuan dan rusaknya habitat mereka. . Berbagai usaha konservasi dilakukan untuk mempertahankan jenis ini dari kepunahan, mulai dari penangkaran dari lembaga lembaga terkait hingga “merusak” tempurung dari tiap individu yang berhasil ditemukan di alam liar agar tidak diburu untuk diperdagangkan sebagai hewan peliharaan. . Yniphora jantan bisa mencapai ukuran panjang 43 cm dengan berat rata rata 10 kg sedangkan betina mencapai 37 cm dan berat 8-9 kg. Seperti kebanyakan torto lainnya, Yniphora juga memakan rerumputan termasuk rumput yang kering. . Sumber : arkive.com 📷 : @turtleconservancy .

Animals Forward! The only way true conservation can work is to put the needs of the animals in front of our own needs, desires, and agendas. A complicated task, conservation is a slow, often uphill process that must be coordinated on many levels. This is no more true for the most endangered tortoise in the world, the Ploughshare Tortoise (Astrochelys yniphora). Coveted by wildlife traffickers, this tortoise now nears functional extinction in Madagascar. While hope to maintain these animals in the wild dims every day, their preservation is still possible through conservation organizations and private stakeholders working together to manage the remaining individuals. This particular tortoise was confiscated from smugglers at Ivato International Airport and is being held at one of our TSA facilities in Madagascar. Hopefully, it will grow to be a reproductive adult who continues to procreate this incredible species. #conservation #preservation #madagascar #ploughsharetortoise #endangeredspecies #tortoise #workingtogether #biodiversity #survival @turtlesurvival

For ITTW this year, we are shining a spotlight on turtle and tortoise conservation.  We shells are awesome, but we’re also in trouble all across the globe.  Just last month, the Turtle Conservation Coalition​ published a report on the top 25 most endangered species of turtles and tortoises in the world, some of which have just a few members left alive. 😱 .

We also protect #ploughsharetortoise in the US by housing the largest private assurance colony in the world outside Madagascar.

• Kura-kura Angonoka • Nama latin : Astrochelys Yniphora Ciiee ada yang lagi narsis pakai minta difoto-foto segala. Tapi by the way, siapa ya dia? Kok sepertinya tidak pernah lihat? Kenalin nih, namanya adalah kura-kura Angonoka. Selain itu juga ada beberapa sebutan lain seperti kura-kura Ploughshare dan juga kura-kura Madagaskar. Bicara soal ukuran, tidak perlu ditanya lagi, dari foto di atas saja sudah bisa kelihatan bahwa kura-kura ini termasuk agak besar. Perlu diketahui kerapasnya bisa mencapai panjang 43 cm. Sayangnya, meski punya pesona yang sangat indah, kura-kura Angonoka saat ini dilindungi. Kura-kura ini diberi label "Critically Endangered" oleh pihak IUCN. Itu berarti populasinya sangat terancam punah di alam liar. Menurut Anda apakah kura-kura Angonoka akan punah di alam liar nantinya?

This photo is worth 💲1 million💲 It shows 10 ploughshare turtles we saw in Africa. Each little guy is worth $100,000 on a black market and there are only 600 left in the wild. Interpol saved these ten cuties that were headed to UAE in a dirty container to be sold to exotic pet owners. Even though they are now protected 24/7 by armed guards in a locked steel dome, there were multiple attempts to steal them by traders, who pretended to be police officers. Ploughshare turtles are endangered species native to Madagascar that are predicted to go extinct in 10-15 years. Sexual maturity is not achieved for two decades, an unfortunate trait for a highly endangered animal. Exotic pet ownership is a huge problem, especially in the Middle East.

The turtle and tortoise trade is rampant around the globe, however much of this trade is centered in countries in Asia. Malaysia, Jakarta, and China are among the biggest turtle markets in the world, with estimates of almost 26,000 pounds of turtle being killed everyday in Malaysia and countless rare turtles and tortoises being imported into, and out of, Jakarta. Recently the Turtle Survival Alliance (@turtlesurvival) made a confiscation of 13 Critically Endangered ploughshare tortoises (Astrochelys yniphora) and some radiated tortoises (Astrochelys radiata) destined to the illegal wildlife trade. The tortoises were onboard a plane when a flight attendant reported suspicious cargo onboard. This is great to see that members of the community are aware about this and will report it. The tortoises were being shipped out of an airport in Antananarivo in Madagascar. The suspect in this case also lead investigators to another package of 35 radiated tortoises also destined for Asia. The tortoises have been transported to the Turtle Survival Alliance holding facility. When they arrived they were all sick and in bad condition. Luckily, the TSA was there, and now all of the tortoises have gained weight. They will soon be transported to the TSA Madagascar facility that holds over 7,000 radiated tortoises, and is undergoing even more enhancements to save this species and others! Thanks so much TSA Madagascar, and the whole TSA team! #turtlesurvival #turtles #savingaspecies #radiated #radiatedtortoise #ploughshare #ploughsharetortoise #angonoka #species #madagascar #airport

Ploughshare tortoise at the @turtleconservancy! We are working to save this species, which is essentially extinct in the wild, at our center in #california. We also support breeding efforts and habitat protection in their home country of #Madagascar with @durrell_jerseyzoo in hopes they can one day be returned to the wild. #ploughsharetortoise

This beauty is the Ploughshare tortoise (Astrochelys yniphora), the world’s most endangered species of tortoise. They could be extinct in two years. Two. Like after one comes two. 2020. The @turtleconservancy is working hard to make sure that doesn’t happen! They are dedicated to the fierce protection of chelonians like the Ploughshare, and they do this effectively by purchasing habitat where turtles and tortoises live and making their homes into wildlife preserves, affording permenant protection to wild chelonians and each and every other species of flora and fauna that share their habitat. Please consider donating to this incredible organization, follow them at @turtleconservancy and go to the link in their bio to contribute to their fundraiser! #turtles #turtle #tortoise #tortoises #givingtuesday #conservation #wildlife #ploughshare #ploughsharetortoise #endangeredspecies #tortoisesofinstagram #turtlesofinstagram #giveback #fundraising #fundraiser #wildlife #animals

#tbt 2012 trip to Madagascar w/ @60minutes @lesleystahlofficial @turtleconservancy. I joined a story about Eric Goode's efforts to save the most endangered tortoise on earth - the Ploughshare. Only found in a super remote area of NE Madagascar. I took this shot of two armed guards outside Durrell Conservancy's Ampijorao Breeding Center. Ploughshares can be sold for nearly $100K on the black market. Hundreds have been bred since our visit. #madagascar #ploughsharetortoise

Seeing baby Ploughshare Tortoises (Astrochelys yniphora) is always a symbol of hope for the world’s most endangered species of tortoise.

#slowmo! Wait for it!! Wait for it even when you think it's done...then see the next clip🐢 This is a rare Ploughshare Tortoise at the amazing, incomparable animal refuge, Cheetah's Rock, on #Zanzibar. They are a critically endangered species (which means if nothing is done the next step is extinction), native to Madagascar and are estimated to be less than a few hundred left IN THE WORLD. Jenny, the woman who is responsible for this incredible place has the largest number of these guys known in the world, too. I cannot wait to share more of this place!
