The Turtle Conservancy has secured 1,000 acres of Tropical Deciduous Forest in southern Sonora, Mexico, for the protection of the newly described Goode’s Thornscrub Tortoise. The habitat of the tortoise will also help save an incredible amount of biodiversity. Over a 4 day bioblitz conducted on the reserve by an international group of researchers, the team captured or observed 28 species of reptiles, 10 amphibians, six fish, two mountain lions and two jaguars.
