Will the Desert Tortoise Survive?

How much do you know about tortoises?

I did not know that much until a few years ago, when I became aware that tortoises in Israel are an endangered species and protected as a result. 

Have you ever considered that there is a benefit to other animals in the desert due to the desert tortoise?  What can the tortoise contribute?

In this video below, you can learn a little about the desert tortoise of the USA and the important work being done to research and work towards assisting tortoises to survive. The video teaches some interesting facts about the tortoise, including how it helps other animals in the desert.
