    tortoise generally can't swim if you're releasing into water.

    why not check with SBWR?

    Where do u live? I suggest that u be responsible enough to find a good owner for your tortoise. Domesticated tortoise will not be able to survive in the wild. And it will also disrupt the ecosystem. SO NEVER EVER RELEASE YOUR TORTOISE IN THE WILD.

    Some local Buddhist temples have big ponds with terrapins in them. Can check them out to see if suitable. One is the Kwang Ming San near the Bishan goldf driving range.

    I'm not sure how the pond being manage now, the last visit in a few years ago, seeing few hundred tortoises in a pond, some of them are eating dead tortoise, old lady selling rotten vat and molded bread to visitors for feeding tortoises.

    and please do not release tortoises to any public parks has pond, as I did ask the PR from national park, they have to engage contractors to dispose excess tortoises in the pond, how do the contractors dispose the tortoises? I don't know, maybe end up in somebody stomach or killed and dump in the bin.

    don't release in the wild too, even see tortoise get killed by cars while crossing the road

    find a owner willing to adopt your tortoise.

    or try to contact animal shelters, these are manege by animal lovers, your tortoise will get better welfare.

    I think better ask Nparks/PUB (reservoirs) for clarification.
    I heard if release in wrong place, if you get caught, you can get fined..
