Nature Conservancy helping to revive the timber industry

Located in Library / News and Events Inbox
The Middle Rio Grande is a precious thread of water through the desert. Here, the migratory bird flyway narrows into a small corridor along this river because it becomes practically the only water source for thousands of miles, east and west. Conservation partners in the Middle Rio Grande know that every square mile of the river is important for wildlife, especially birds. Landowners, non-governmental organizations, federal and state agencies, tribes, and others are all crucial advocates here. Watch this short video to hear directly from a diverse coalition of people who are working together to keep the Middle Rio Grand intact.

File image/x-icon Bison Conservation Genetics Study at Wind River Ranch, New Mexico
Bison face a variety of threats to their long-term survival as a species, including the spread of new diseases, low genetic diversity, and the introgression of domestic cattle genes. At Wind River Ranch (WRR), NM, we are studying the genetic diversity and cattle hybrid status of the resident wild bison herd to ensure its conservation significance. Three WRR bison were identified cattle hybrids using a mitochondrial marker. WRR has two distinct bison mitochondrial lineages, one unique to WRR, and one shared by bison at Yellowstone, the National Bison Range, the Texas State Bison Herd, and the Fort Niobrara NWR.
