Caption: Recuperating Hermann's tortoises (Testudo hermanni) at an animal rescue centre. Injured tortoises are treated and then brought here to recuperate in these pens, kept at a temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. This tortoise is found in southern Europe. It is threatened in its natural scrub habitat by urbanisation and forest fires. Injured tortoises are cared for here and then released back into the wild. Photographed in "Le Village Des Tortues", a tortoise rescue centre in southern France.
