    Search warrant results in seizure of one of world’s worst invasive animals

    In late September, NSW DPI Compliance Investigations Officers executed a search warrant at a residential property in south-western Sydney seizing 90 Red-eared slider turtles and 2 Alligator snapping turtles.

    Dr Michelle Christy, the National Incursions and Prevention Facilitator for the Centre for Invasive Species Solutions based with the WA Department of Primary Industries said "apart from killing native animals and spreading disease, illegally trafficked turtles are often subjected to inhumane conditions, resulting in significant trauma and unacceptable levels of mortality".
    Thanks to NSW DPI for sharing this story with us.
