Description: In January 2003, the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Alabama Division, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) finalized a plan to protect habitat for the threatened gopher tortoise in southwest Alabama. Gopher tortoise habitat is currently being impacted by a number of proposed highway projects and by encroaching development. Rather than dealing with the gopher tortoise on a project-by-project basis, ALDOT acquired more than 600 acres for a gopher tortoise conservation bank. Conservation banking will allow ALDOT to protect the large and viable habitat needed to support a thriving gopher tortoise population. FWS has reviewed and approved the site, and ALDOT, FHWA, and FWS developed a plan to enhance the area as a long leaf pine habitat. In addition, the three agencies have developed and agreed to maintenance procedures, including the control and eradication of exotic species like Cogon grass and fire ants, and to criteria for the capture, testing, release, and monitoring of the species.
