New tortoises make De Anza their home

November 15, 2015


Two Mojave Desert tortoises, a native Southern Californian species that is endangered, made De Anza college their home.

The environmental science department adopted them from Silicon Valley Turtle and Tortoise Club, and now tortoises live in the Kirsch Center.

Students can see them in classes such as ES3 (Imagery of the Environment) which includes drawing of different lifeforms.

During the tortoises’ hibernation, students will be building an enclosure for them,. In spring two amniotes will occupy the ESA garden area by the pond.
