Tortoise conservation in the Seychelles

A conservation project in the Seychelles is giving tortoises a better chance at life.

While many tortoises can live to a very old age, but survival at a young age can be a challenge as many die in their first few years.

Mike London reports from Curieuse where young tortoises are being safeguarded to ensure they have a long and happy life.
