    • Is the event in Desert Tortoise Habitat?

      This event is located in the range of the desert tortoise. The range of the desert tortoise, Gopherus agassizii, includes deserts in southern California, southern Nevada, Arizona, the southwestern tip of Utah, and northern Mexico. The Mojave population (an administrative designation for animals living north and west of the Colorado River) was listed as threatened in 1990. Critical habitat (habitat containing all elements necessary for continued viability of the species and is designated by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) for this population was designated in 1994. This event is located within an area containing the Mojave population and is adjacent to critical habitat and a Desert Wildlife Management Area (DWMA).

      Where Does the Desert Tortoise Live?

      The Mojave population of the desert tortoise occurs primarily on flats and bajadas (alluvial fans, descending from mountain ranges) characterized by scattered shrubs and abundant inter-space for growth of herbaceous plants (primarily annuals), with soils ranging from sand-clay to sandy-gravel. They are also found on rocky terrain and slopes.

      Why is the Desert Tortoise Listed?

      The Mojave population of the desert tortoise was listed because numbers are declining rapidly in many areas. These declines are mainly attributed to direct and indirect human-caused mortality coupled with the inadequacy of existing rules and regulations to protect the species and its habitat. Impacts such as the destruction, degradation, and fragmentation of desert tortoise habitat, result from urbanization, agricultural development, livestock grazing, mining, and roads. Disease caused by the return of captive tortoises to the desert is also a major factor in the decline of this animal. The desert tortoise is protected by law. To harm, harass, or kill a tortoise or degrade its habitat can result in fines up to $100,000 and/or up to six months in jail.

      What Can You Do During the Event to Help the Desert Tortoise?

      In order to minimize effects to the desert tortoise, we request that you observe the following: -Do not exceed the 25 mph maximum speed for this event; do not cut across the desert off the event route. The Poker Run is NOT a race!!! -Watch for tortoises while you are riding. If you see a tortoise in the road, either wait for it to move or carefully drive around it behind the direction it is traveling. -All trash and food items will be carried out by event participants. Immediately report any oil spills or other fluid leaks to the event coordinator. -Stay within the parameters of the route. Should your vehicle break down, pull it off the road, avoiding vegetation and any animal burrows.
