DESCO attends Twenty-third Desert Tortoise Council Fall Workshop
11/03 – 11/04/14:
DESCO’s Roman Mayo attended the Desert Tortoise Workshop in Ridgecrest, California.
This two-day Workshop is a comprehensive introduction to the Mojave desert tortoise with important information on ecology, habitat preferences, life history, health, threats, and physiology. This private council promotes conservation of the desert tortoise in the barren lands of the southwestern United States and Mexico.
The non-profit organization is composed of hundreds of individuals, including DESCO, who have a shared concern for the desert tortoise in the wild and a commitment to advancing the public’s understanding of the species to promote conservation. Roman Mayo said, “This workshop is an excellent way to gain introductory knowledge and experience with the desert tortoise and the ecology of the Mojave Desert.”
