2020 Tortoise Burrow Data Analysis
In early 2020, Yuliang Huang and a team of volunteers surveyed the gopher tortoise burrows on our property. Using calipers, they measured the burrows and observed whether they were active, inactive, or collapsed. The collected information was then analyzed with ArcGIS software to find patterns in the data.

2022 Tortoise Burrow Data Analysis
In continuation of Yuliang Huang’s project, a group of volunteers went back out to Hundred Acre Hollows in early 2022 to survey the gopher tortoise burrows. The data collected from the gopher tortoise burrows from this survey would then be compared to the results gathered in the 2020 tortoise burrow data analysis. Over 500 gopher tortoise burrows were found in 2020 and two years later the 2022 survey found over 600 gopher tortoise burrows.
