We are delighted to introduce the newest member of the Lincoln family, Tortilla the tortoise! He is a nine year old, healthy, male Horsefield tortoise. He will be well cared for by our Head Gardener, Aimee Irving-Bell, who has a degree in Zoology with a specialism in reptile care, along with six student helpers.

A survey to select his name received over 500 votes from students, staff, Fellows, and alumni. Thank you to all those who took part.
