The tiny area they live in has been reduced even further by draining and filling to make way for market gardens and roads.
The Western Swamp Tortoise hybernates during the hot dry months and are particularly susceptible to predators during this time, especially introduced species such as cats and foxes.
Breeding age is not reached until eight years old and eggs are dependent on early winter rains. If the rains don’t come, the babies won’t survive.

In 1988 a breeding program was set up at the Perth Zoo. Since then, many tortoises have been successfully bred and released into the wild and their remaining habitat is now protected.
For more information about the breeding program go to Perth Zoo.
The protected wetlands are now lined with electric fences to keep out foxes, dogs and other predators.
During the winter months, if rainfall is low, water is pumped into the area to ensure the hatchlings have enough water and food.
