Local desert tortoises lost many (if not all) of their old burrows in the recent monsoonal flooding, the most intense here in northern Joshua Tree in at least 15 years. We’ve been worried about whether the various tortoises were able to survive. So, I was happy on Sunday at dusktime to come across this freshly dug adult-sized tortoise burrow at our Sunever Farms property. Good work!
