Ashton Preserve tortoisesTake a four-hour trip on over 1,000 acres of land to learn about all of the animals on the preserve, including the tortoises. Founded in 1996 to preserve critical uplands habitat for the future, Ashton Biological Preserve is named after its founders, Ray and Pat Ashton. The preserve conducts research on many types of wildlife native to the region, and specializes in tortoise care. They are one of the world's largest captive breeding facilities for the endangered radiated tortoise (Astrochelys radiata), and are actively involved in conservation of the native gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus), native to the region.
