Your Comments Can Help Desert Tortoises

A population of desert tortoise that occurs in the desert regions from St. George, Utah through California has been threatened with extinction since 1990. In 1994, the Fish and Wildlife Service published a comprehensive Recovery Plan, written by leading desert tortoise scientists, that provides a clear path for desert tortoise recovery. Sadly, few of the recommendations in the existing 1994 Recovery Plan have been implemented, and the tortoise continues to decline throughout its range.

You can make a difference for the desert tortoise by writing to the Fish and Wildlife Service right now and requesting that it take the time to rework the proposed recovery plan and revise it to actually achieve desert tortoise recovery.

Visit to take action.
