Help Protect California’s Desert Wildlife!

The California desert has a part to play to help combat the impacts of climate change, clean up air pollution and provide clean energy jobs. But while the desert is important to a clean energy future, it is also a special environment that must be protected.

Avoiding unnecessary harm and protecting the pristine desert lands and vulnerable wildlife that call these lands home is crucial. Concentrating renewable energy development on already disturbed and degraded lands will help meet our clean energy goals while conserving imperiled wildlife, including the threatened desert tortoise, Mohave ground squirrel, desert bighorn sheep, flat-tailed horned lizard and golden eagles.

The DRECP is an amazing opportunity for concerned citizens like you to help determine the future of clean energy and conservation of California’s desert lands and wildlife. If done right, this proposal will advance crucial renewable energy development, while protecting millions of acres of public and private land for wildlife. If done wrong, the future survival of desert wildlife, like the iconic desert tortoise, will be unnecessarily threatened at the expense of poorly planned clean energy development.
