ⓘ Desert Tortoise Natural Area

The Desert Tortoise Research Natural Area is a 39.5-square-mile area in the western Mojave Desert, located in eastern Kern County, Southern California. It was created to protect the native Desert Tortoise, which is also the California State Reptile.

The area is located in the South-Western part of the mountain of Randa, to the North-East of the city of California information center for visitors.

Bureau of land management acknowledged the importance of the area and designated it an "area of critical environmental concern" and as a "Research natural area" in 1980.
