HIPSTERS: AWC's New Desert Tortoise Habitat

At Arizona Western College, a group of students, faculty, and staff have volunteered their time to provide a new environmental habitat for some familiar southwestern animals—the threatened Gopherus agassizii, or Desert Tortoise.  They call themselves HIPSTERS and they’re tackling the project using sustainable technology and a lot of ingenuity.  KAWC’s Maya Springhawk Robnett gets her hands dirty as she reports on AWC’s new Desert Tortoise habitat…(originally aired 12/04/13).
