Transition Habitat Conservancy
Our mission: Transition Habitat Conservancy protects areas of critical habitat, transition zone and wildlife corridor ecosystems and their scenic, agricultural, and cultural resource values in the West Mojave Desert. We participate in programs improving our knowledge of the Mojave Desert ecosystem. We also provide education about the fragile and inspirational nature of our desert plants, animals, and ecosystems to connect people to nature.
