Gopher Tortoise Volunteer Opportunities - 07/21/2014
Dear Future Volunteers,
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is recruiting volunteers to participate in gopher tortoise conservation. Becoming an FWC volunteer is a great way for Florida residents to be citizen scientists and help protect Florida’s wildlife.
There are 3 new opportunities for you to get involved:
•Mortality Data Collection: Volunteers report all observed gopher tortoise mortalities to FWC
•Tortoise Taxi: Volunteers assist in the transportation of sick, injured, or rehabilitated tortoises
•Silt Fence Installation: Volunteers install temporary enclosures for relocated gopher tortoises (must be physically able to work outside)
Volunteers play a very important role in gopher tortoise conservation. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or would like more information regarding these volunteer opportunities, please contact us at GTEvents@MyFWC.com. Thank you for your interest in protecting gopher tortoises. We hope to hear from you soon.
