New App could help protect Florida Gopher Tortoise

In Florida, the Gopher Tortoise is listed as threatened. And you can help protect them via your smart phone.

The Florida Wildlife Commission has launched a new "app" aimed at protecting them.

All you have to do is download the "Florida Gopher Tortoise" app for free.

When you see a tortoise or its burrow, snap a picture. It is automatically sent to the FWC.

The data will then be used to help conservationists keep track of the tortoise, and monitor its surroundings.
