43rd Annual Desert Tortoise Council Symposium
02/22/2018 - 02/25/2018
Sam’s Town Gambling Hall and Casino
Las Vegas, NV
We have put together an exciting and substantive program with many new faces and topics, as well as several returning scientists and government people. Sessions include presentations on translocation, head-starting and augmentation of populations, health and disease, genetics, and several other subjects. Managers and wildlife biologists from government will present recent and future recovery efforts undertaken by their agencies on behalf of the desert tortoise. We are holding the announcement of our Keynote Speaker, winner of the Research Award, in abeyance for now. You will hear more about this very special surprise in our next announcement.
