Eleanor Tirtasana Chubb - leading tortoise conservationist, keeper and breeder discusses the European History of Pet Tortoises

Eleanor Tirtasana Chubb has spent much of her life exploring the curious world of the tortoise, including their often eccentric keepers and collectors, zoologists, vets, traders (legal and illegal) and conservation efforts both successful and hopeless. Her exploration has involved creation of and involvement in multiple conservation and welfare organisations, plus teaching, lecturing and attending world conferences.

Her lecture will intertwine nuggets of historical trivia, stories of humanisation taken to the extreme, the characters making change, madness behind myth, political extinction threats and conservation dysfunction, among other matters. If you didn’t think tortoises were interesting, you will after this.
