Hi All,
I keep 3 girls :msgreen: :msgreen: :msgreen: in HK for 20 years.
many of my friends also keeping red eared slider would like to migrate UK, but the UK gov labeling the turtles as invasive species. If UK didn't allow the entry of sliders, it might lead 1)many red eared slider owners were unavailable to enter UK, or 2)part of sliders were given up by some keeper (news were shown at HK that many volunteers received many given up turtles). :cry:

is there any useful information for hk's keeper :roll:

There are probably no easy answers, even in optimal situations. Is there a rescue or perhaps family that can help?

no, since some owners will not leave his/her pet and going uk. Hk is a densely populate city, hk people cannot keep large animal, so many hk people keep turtle or fish instead.
I feel confused and still find my way to uk with my 3 girls.

This is an older article, and some parts are probably outdated, but some of the links and phone #s might lead to some more help: https://www.beardeddragon.org/articles/ukimport/ and https://www.gov.uk/guidance/importing-n ... ve-animals
