Gopher Tortoise Mortality

To better protect and understand the gopher tortoise, data on mortality observations in Florida can help track the density of gopher tortoises in urban areas. The FWC and other conservation groups can use this data to further protection efforts. Florida's citizens are a valuable resource when it comes to gathering data. This survey will help to determine areas of higher mortality and help the FWC and other groups develop new plans to enhance the protection of the gopher tortoise.
