Pig-nosed turtle (Carettochelys insculpta) for TV show

Post by jon » Fri Aug 09, 2013 10:56 am

Hi all,

Does anyone own a pig-nosed turtle in the London/M25 area who would be happy to take it into a studio into London for a TV show in early September?

We are working on a new campaign to raise the profile of animals like the pig-nosed turtle, who are endangered in the wild, and we are looking to feature one on a TV show.

Please email info@nsecuk.org if you would like to take part or know someone else that would.

Thanks,

Jon

Hi, a question and a comment.

What do you mean by 'raise the profile' exactly?

Maybe you should add the 'proper' name for this species. Would help with searches and suggests you are serious about your enquiry. :-)

Thanks for your reply Mike.

We are working on a campaign to raise the profile of the endangered animals, who are traditionally not seen as beautiful like the panda or tiger but are just as important. The campaign is run by a well-respected science charity.

If anyone, would like more information please email me.
