The Tortoises of Ashton Biological Preserve

Have you ever looked at a Tortoise and thought, what an odd but yet fascinating creature?

These Reptiles too face some very challenging times due to loss of habitat, illegal wildlife/pet trade literally being eaten to extinction!

The Ashton Biological Preserve is located just outside Archer, Florida.

Chase Pirtle, Ashton's animal care specialist and habitat manager, has taken it upon himself, together with a small team, to help change this for these reptiles.

Herewith s short introduction of some of the endangered species the Ashton Biological Preserve works with. More videos describing each of the species in more detail will be launched throughout 2019/2020.
