A 6-month old desert tortoise eats aboard Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, Twentynine Palms, Calif., April 12, 2017. The Tortoise Research and Captive Rearing Site is a long-term assessment of how to protect nests, hatchlings and juveniles until they grow resilient enough to endure the harsh physical environment, resist most predation and mature to fully-functional adults that produce offspring and support the population.
