Field Journal: Baby Tortoises!

Babies! This week the staff at Oatland Island Wildlife Center found their first gopher tortoise hatchlings of the season. This makes two years in a row that the wild tortoises have successfully bred. We're getting quite a population, so please watch your step as you hike the beautiful trails on Oatland Island. Come across a tortoise or other wild animal during your visit? If it is safe to take a photograph, remember to tag us in your Instagram and Twitter posts @OatlandIsland or use the following hashtags: #oatlandisland #friendsofoatland
