Gardner Bender donates cable ties and mounting bases to help repair shells on Gopher Tortoises and other Tortoises through Wildlife Inc in Bradenton Beach, Florida. This Method will be demonstrated to 150 veterinarians and biologists in September 2015 to help rehabilitate turtles in a safe & effective way.
A turtles shell consists of over 50 bones and provides critical protection from predators above and below. The Gopher Tortoise is protected under the Endangered Species Act in different regions around the US.
