ADEL, GA (WALB) - You can adopt a baby tortoise before it's released into the wild at a state park.

Reed Bingham State Park plans to release 100 young gopher tortoises on Saturday at 2 p.m.

For a $10 donation to the Friends of Reed Bingham, you can adopt a tortoise.

You can take a photo with the baby and you'll receive progress reports whenever your tortoise is located and scanned.

The tortoises are micro-chipped so they can be tracked.

The Park started the Gopher Tortoise Project started seven years ago to protect the threatened species that is Georgia's official state reptile.
