Dr. Brian Henen, base ecologist, Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs, explains the desert tortoise’s behavior to the Commanding General, Brig. Gen. William F. Mullen III, April 12, 2017, during the Desert Tortoise translocation aboard the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, Twentynine Palms, Calif. The translocation, in accordance with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service-signed Biological Opinion, serves as a negotiated mitigation to support the mandated land expansion which will afford the Combat Center the ability to conduct Large Scale Exercise training featuring up to a Marine Expeditionary Brigade-level force.
