Army to move forward with tortoise relocation By DAVID DANELSKI Riverside Press-Enterprise September 11, 2009The U.S. Army has told the U.S. Bureau of Land Management it plans to move 90 imperiled tortoises from Fort Irwin next month, despite the bureau's position that it will not participate in the effort because of uncertainty over how many of the reptiles will survive.
John Wagstaffe, a Fort Irwin spokesman, said the Army will relocate the desert tortoises after it gets an OK from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The Army wants the tortoises cleared from 24,000 acres to make way for expanded training with tanks and other military vehicles.
