Take Action

Protect Mojave Water

The Mojave Desert is the driest desert in all of North America. But this seemingly desolate landscape supports a breathtaking array of wildlife, all of which are sustained by underground aquifers and springs.

But the Los Angeles-based company Cadiz Inc. wants to pump billions of gallons of groundwater out of the Mojave Desert aquifer each year to sell it to clients in coastal southern California.

AB 1000, the California Desert Protection Act, would prevent water from desert regions around national monuments, preserves and other protected spaces from being pumped out if doing so would harm the region’s cultural or natural resources.

Urge Senate Leaders Kevin De Leon and Ricardo Lara to protect the wildlife of the Mojave and support the California Desert Protection Act.
