Human Impacts And Threats

Human Impacts & Threats

Many human activities throughout the range of the desert tortoise degrade, destroy, and fragment habitat within fragile desert ecosystems. Several of these activities may also exacerbate natural impacts, such as disease and predation, which affect desert tortoise populations.  We invite you to explore these threats and their complex interactions by visiting our Threats page, created as part of our integrated environmental education and responsible recreation program.
