4 of 5
One of Woodland Park Zoo's new hatchling species, the Egyptian tortoise, is among the top 40 tortoises and freshwater turtles at a very high risk of extinction. In 17 years, Woodland Park Zoo has produced more Egyptian tortoise hatchlings on average than any other zoo in the U.S., hatching more than 75 tortoises.
The zoo supports the Egyptian Tortoise Conservation Program to help increase the species' wild population and genetic diversity.
