Desert Lands and Wildlife
Through our Desert Lands and Wildlife Program, we work to ensure the long-term survival of native wildlife--not just in remnant populations but in ecologically meaningful numbers distributed across their historic ranges.
A notable achievement has been 8 years of successfully defending the grasslands, wildlife and water of Otero Mesa—one of the largest remaining desert grasslands in North America--from proposed oil and gas development.
We have also worked hard to build support for successful reintroduction of the Mexican Wolf to its historic range in the Southwest through public outreach, advocacy and highlighting the potential economic value of wolves from ecotourism.
