In the article “Can the Desert Tortoise Be Saved?” By Mackenzie Carro, she states that in the boiling Mojave Desert there is a species called the Desert Tortoise, this species is going extinct due to ravens flying down from the sky and plucking them from the ground. The reason there are so many ravens is because tons of humans move there over the past 50 years. One of the main reasons there are more ravens is because the humans produce garbage which the raves eat, the humans make telephone poles that the ravens nest, because of all of this the ravens population has gone up 700%. This conservation group called Shield, founded by Tim Shields is using some new technology to outsmart the ravens. They are putting out plastic fake Desert Tortoise
In "Can the Desert Tortoise Be Saved?", Mackenzie Carro informs the reader that the desert tortoise is being endangered by ravens, but it can be reversed by using technology. In the Mojave Desert, baby desert tortoises are being gobbled up by ravens. The population of the ravens was small. But when lots of people starting living there, the population went up by nearly 700 percent. So the ravens keep on eating the desert tortoises. But Tim Shield has a solution to this problem. He thinks that he can….

They are defending the….

The story “The Tortoise and the Hare” shows us that even if a person has a natural disadvantage in a challenge he or she can still succeed if they work hard and believe in themselves.

The story begins when a hare insults a tortoise for his slowness and brags about how great a runner she is. The….

Why do you think the tortoise asked the hare to race him when he knew very well that the hare was faster than….

I did this because of all chores and yard work. Trudging through the pain of my severe sunburn and aching body I always finished….
