Winter is gone and the bisons welcome a new member into the herd!

Winter in the Chihuahuan desert is harsh.

Dear friends, 

 

In this brief report, we would like to share with you a couple of photographs of the bison herd that lives inside our conservation ranch, El Uno, in the state of Chihuahua. This herd is the only one kept for conservation purposes in Mexico and is a fundamental piece in the effort to preserve both our grasslands and the species that depend on them. We hope that you enjoy the photos as much as we do! This year's winter was harsh, but the improving weather conditions were accompanied by the first birth of 2019.

 

Please consider renewing your support for this project, every one of your donations is critical to our conservation efforts.

The herd has a new member!

New project starting very soon!

Dear friends,

In the coming weeks, we will kick-start our new project in the northern State of Coahuila. The project--whose overarching goal is to increase community self-reliance in 14 communities through the implementation of appropriate technologies--will begin with the installation of six wood-saving stoves and the construction of a solid waste management module in two of the targeted communities. Expect further updates and photos very soon!

Please consider becoming a recurrent donor to this project and mentioning us to your friends and family. Every one of your generous donations helps us improve the living conditions of some of the most vulnerable segments of the population in Mexico.

Best regards, 

Francisco Ehrenberg

February update

Dear friends,

Since our last report, we have made a lot of progress in establishing this year’s priorities for golden eagle conservation in Mexico. In this regard, field monitoring is at the top of the list. We will continue finding new nesting territories throughout the year and measuring the productivity and reproductive success of those already in our records. Additionally, we will keep working with rural communities to train local monitors and to create a sense of ownership concerning the species.

In addition to our work in the northern state of Chihuahua, this year we are expanding our geographic focus to the state of Guanajuato, where there is practically no available information on the current state of golden eagle populations. Through field monitoring, we aim to generate the basic knowledge needed to improve decision-making at the municipal level. Also, we will create a baseline that will help us track the impact of management decisions on the eagles.

Your support is paramount for the continuation of our work. Thank you for joining us on this journey, and please consider renewing your contribution to the project.
