You and your cell phone can help FWC

The  FWC wants to use your "shell phones"!

The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission is asking you to snap a picture if and when you happen to see a gopher tortoise or its burrow. Then you're asked to upload it to the FWC through the agency's free gopher tortoise app!

It will automatically send the picture, along with the GPS coordinates, to the FWC.  You will be helping the agency track the animal's populations for future generations.
