Dr. Brian Henen is the lead biologist for the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center located in Twentynine Palms, Calif. The Marine Corps’ conservation program gives imperiled desert tortoises 'head-start' on survival.

By sustaining and bolstering the population of tortoises at the Combat Center, the Marine Corps hopes to help the desert tortoise on its road to recovery. With more than 400 tortoises of varying ages remaining at TRCRS, additional releases will be occurring for the next 10 years. Information obtained through the monitoring of the tortoise releases will shed additional light on the species’ life history. A desert tortoise may be present. Additional information - click here.
