WEEKLY EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM - GOPHER TORTOISES
Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park

Every Tuesday this summer beginning June 10th at 9:30.


The Herpetology Research Lab at Florida Gulf Coast University is investigating a population of tortoises within Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, Naples.  Learn about this research from FGCU Environmental Studies studentChristopher Tesmer  who will explain and demonstrate what is taking place; a tortoise burrow survey, a mark-recapture study and genetic analyses; as well as a radio telemetry study to better understand habitat use and behavior of these Tortoises.   These weekly educational programs will  raise awareness for Gopher Tortoise conservation and the importance of the parks system to wildlife and ecosystem conservation.   Meet at the Pavilion in area 5 of the park.  Free with admission to the park.
