Tracking Tortoises in Las Vegas

A group of researchers from the San Diego Zoo's Institute for Conservation Research has released 36 desert tortoises in the Las Vegas desert. The team has attached at GPS units to 24 of the tortoises to track their movement and habitat choices. We'll talk with the head researcher of the project about what we can learn from tracking tortoises in the desert.
