Geneva Area Pond Club
65 route du Boiron
On the first Saturday of every month from 2 to 6 p.m., local animal lovers meet informally to discuss the care and feeding of turtles and tortoises kept as pets, and the protection of the diminishing natural environments of specimens living in the wild.
Members of the Geneva Area Turtle and Tortoise Society meet in one another's homes and gardens in the towns around Geneva, Vaud, and neighboring France. Discussions are typically conducted in English or French, and visitors are always welcome. Full details of each meeting are listed on the Society's web site at http://turtles.meetup.com/44.
The web site also offers free membership to all without obligation, and over 150 captioned photos of turtles and tortoises to facilitate identification of the various species. It includes informative articles on how to feed and house different varieties, their interesting mating habits, how to hatch their eggs in incubators, and the best ways to raise the hatchlings.
The Society's founders have also established a Turtle and Tortoise Sanctuary in Nyon, 15 minutes northeast of Geneva. They adopt these animals when their owners can no longer give them the care they need.
Unwanted pet turtles and tortoises can live there in an ideal natural environment, maintained by an experienced herpetologist. Tortoises can roam with others in the lushly planted fenced-in garden, or rest in their insulated shelters. Turtles can join the others swimming in the large water-lily and goldfish ponds.
Chelonians already living in the Sanctuary find life there so ideal that they breed readily. Eggs of a Hermann's tortoise are now developing in the Sanctuary's incubator.
