Hidalgo County, New Mexico

Conservation Easement

Set in high desert country with rolling hills, the Allranch Wildlife Sanctuary is a 1,280-acre property described by owner as, "a harsh and sudden land, filled with danger, exceptional beauty, and the miracle of life." On the property, all creatures are treated with respect. Knowing that the rabbits, quail, dove, deer and all the other creatures who share the land will always have safe haven there gives the current owner peace-of-mind.

In 2012, the stewardship team Installed a water guzzler Allranch Wildlife Sanctuary. This will provide a vital, permanent water source for the wildlife who live here, including fox, coyote, badger, porcupine, bobcat, ringtail, javelina, and spade foot toads.

Although this sanctuary remains privately owned, the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust has an obligation to perform periodic inspections to ensure that the wildlife habitat remains in good condition and that the terms of the conservation easements are being met.  These inspections, and the handling of any destruction or violations, cost heavily in professional staff time, consultants, and travel expenses. In addition HSWLT needs a reserve of funds for the substantial legal fees needed if enforcement of violations involves court action.

HSWLT has promised to protect this property as sanctuary forever -- and that promise will be kept.  If you can help with the cost of stewardship for this and the other properties HSWLT protects, please donate here.

Prairie dogs are like a canary in the coal mine. If their population declines and dies, others will soon follow.
