MOJAVE DESERT LAND TRUST ACQUIRES ANOTHER 40 ACRES FOR PRESERVATION

Mojave Desert Land Trust (MDLT) announced it has successfully completed the acquisition of 40 acres of pristine wildlife habitat near the northern boundary of Joshua Tree National Park. The acquisition will permanently preserve a section of wildlife corridor required for the movement of bighorn sheep, badger, mule deer, mountain lion, and dozens of bird species, in addition to providing pristine habitat for the recovery of the threatened desert tortoise. The new 40-acre property, known as QM2m is adjacent to the MDLT Quail Mountain Project, 955 acres that were preserved in September of 2010. The acquisition was made possible through a generous donation by the landowner and donations to MDLT’s Wildlife Linkage Campaign. MDLT has protected over 44,000 acres of desert land through acquisition, land stewardship, and strategic partnerships. More information about the Land Trust is available at www.mojavedesertlandtrust.org.
