For anyone with a pet tortoise: Please note that we are not a turtle or tortoise rescue nor is the Desert Tortoise Research Natural Area a place where tortoises can be released. We are an organization that protects and manages wild tortoise habitat. There are other organizations dedicated to helping those in need of re-homing their tortoises.
