Tortoises are on the move!!

Its breeding season for gopher tortoises and they are on the move! Let's see if we can add 10 naturalists to this project and 20 new observations by the end of the month! It is a lofty goal but we can do it in 8 days! Please help get the word out and share this project! Remember, gopher tortoises are federally protected in Mobile, Washington and Choctaw counties and state protected in the other counties. Enjoy them from afar and don't forget to snap a photo and provide gps coordinates so we can add your observation to our list. I will keep you posted on where we stand. Have a fun week and thank you for your contributions to the project! Ericha
