The Space Coast Eco Geeks deserve special thanks. They are four Brevard County biology teachers from West Shore, Edgewood, Bayside, and Cocoa High schools who have offered invaluable assistance to this project by studying and photographing the gopher tortoises and other wildlife on-site as part of their Eco Classroom project. For more information regarding their project- which was graciously funded by Northrop Grumman– see their website at:
