Gopher tortoises are a threatened species. They are a “Keystone” species because they dig burrows in the sandy soil that provide homes for many other animals.
Our October Newsletter includes lots of important dates and information.
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.
