Moving animals not a panacea for habitat loss
excerpt from above:
Quote:
New University of Georgia research suggests moving threatened animals to protected habitats may not always be an effective conservation technique if the breeding patterns of the species are influenced by a social hierarchy...

I saw this on a turtle list. I know that NA Box and Wood Turtles have territories and when moved they usually don't do well. Box Turtles try to go back *home*. This past Winter while vacationing in FL I was lucky to see a gorgeous Gopher Tortoise.
