François Leguat Giant Tortoise and Cave Reserve

Recommended
The ecosystem on Rodrigues has suffered from the devastating damage at the hands of humans; the island's natural resources have been exhausted through deforestation and the slaughter of animal species (with tortoises being among the first to suffer). This reserve strives to reintroduce a thousand giant tortoises into a reconstituted ecosystem. An initiation to a natural environment in the process of reasserting itself. The reserve also has 11 caves, including Grande Caverne (490m long).
