Den burmesiske stjerne skildpadde

The Burmese star tortoise is an endangered species originally from the dry zone in
Myanmar and in urgent need of protection. The Minzontaung Wildlife Sanctuary has been
doing an excellent job in breeding tortoises and setting them back out in the wild and we
take you to this simple but unique project to walk with their rangers through the forest (all
together about 1–1.5 hr) with a tracking device to locate some of the tortoise in the wild
and continue for a glimpse inside the breeding centre to see more of the tortoise. The
simple visitor centre (set up by Khiri Reach) gives you more information about this
endangered and oh so cute little animal. The walk is not compulsory and also without a
visit to the rangers station you will learn a lot about the tortoise and see them at the
breeding centre. Your visit to the centre will support the project.
After the visit to the tortoise centre we continue for lunch at a nearby restaurant.
