GO for Gopher Tortoises!



Come out of your shells!

For the month of September, we are encouraging all of our followers to get outside and GO for Gopher Tortoises!  We are inviting everyone to walk, run, hike, bike, roll, or herp your way through a Gopher Tortoise Conservation 5K (3.1 miles).  

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Show your support.  Grab some GO for Gopher Tortoises gear in our Shop!

  2. Spread the word.  Tell your friends about what we do and how they can support wildlife conservation too.  Show off your new gear!  Challenge your friends and family.  Tag the rest of your team on social media!  Send friends the link to this page to learn more.  

  3. Track your miles.  Trail map, step counter, or app on your phone – track your distance however you want.  Complete it all in one go, or build up your miles over the month of September.

  4. Send us a photo of you and your miles supporting Gopher Tortoise conservation.  We want to see you outside, doing your thing!  Email it to us at info@oriannesociety.org, or post it on social media and tag us @oriannesociety.  

  5. Bask in the glory of your accomplishment.  (And, perhaps, challenge more people to GO for Gopher Tortoises too.)
