ABSTRACT: The Alabama Tortoise Alliance, a collaboration of government, academic, NGOs, business interests and private landowners led by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries is creating an adaptive action plan for future tortoise conservation efforts in Alabama. Two out of every three acres of private land in the US South is owned by families or individuals that can play an important role in recovery efforts. But with family owned lands, comes diverse goals, stand conditions and commitments to management. As such, in any conservation effort such as this, there is a need for a comprehensive engagement to activity plan that will raise awareness, prioritize prospects, provide service, and sustain the relationship beyond the initiative. This presentation will demonstrate one example currently underway in South Alabama.
