Spring is just around the corner and so is Gopher Tortoise Day on April 10, 2023!

Save the Date for Gopher Tortoise Day

Gopher Tortoise Day was founded by the Gopher Tortoise Council to increase appreciation and conservation support for one of Florida’s iconic species. Florida supports more populations of the gopher tortoise than any other state.

Be part of Gopher Tortoise Day!

As a Florida resident, you are an important part of conserving the state-protected Gopher Tortoise and we encourage you to participate in this year’s events. Celebrating and living alongside gopher tortoises is an important part of ensuring the tortoise, and the over 350 other species they provide shelter for in their burrows, will be around for years to come.

More information will be coming on how to get involved, but in the meantime you can visit the Florida Gopher Tortoise Day website to get started on your plans for this year’s special day.
