Tortoises saved, released on Eglin range
A gopher tortoise waits to begin exploring its new home deep within the Eglin Air Force Base range, Fla., Oct. 26, 2016. The first of more than 250 tortoises were released into their 100-acre habitat after being moved from their previous home in south Florida. Increasing the gopher tortoise population could prevent the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from listing the animal on the threatened and endangered species list.
