Stephanie got this footage, today, in a nearby wash that ORV riders used to use a lot. They still go in there but not as much. It’s illegal, of course. The riders often argue ‘there’s nothing there, what’s the problem?’ because they can’t see a three-inch-long infant tortoise, like this one. Washes are desert tortoise’s native habitat. This is the tortoise’s *home*. Leave her be.
