Our Home

Did you know the Mojave Desert has the hottest air temperature and surface temperature recorded on earth? What about the diversity of the wildlife? Bats, bighorn sheep, mountain lions, mule deer, tortoises and even badgers make the Mojave Desert their home.

The desert is filled with so much more life than most people realize. We spend our days studying and advocating for the unique ecosystem that we call home. 

While humans continue to develop land for critical needs like power, water and roads, biologists, archeologists and other professionals work with all of the industries involved to make sure we are developing responsibly and leaving space for our critter friends.
