ploughshare tortoises have beautiful shell, but with all the illegal trading, there are only 300 of them left in the wild. to fight for poaching and protect these rare tortoises, ugly marks were being engraved on two of them at the Behler Chelonian Center in Ventura County recently. even though it is heartbreaking to destroy their natural beauty, conservationists believe this is the right thing to do to protect them when they are facing extinction.
