Meet Our Animal Ambassadors
Each of our Animal Ambassadors has a unique story and important place in our programs. Bringing guests closer to our ambassadors is just one way we will help others gain an appreciation for local wildlife.
Shelldon (patient #15-2068) is a gopher tortoise that was hit by a vehicle and sustained permanent damage to his plastron and right forearm. As a result, he cannot dig burrows or protect himself. When he is not educating visitors in CROW's Visitor Education Center you can find him helping with landscaping and enjoying edible native plants.
