Saving Sonoran Pronghorn: Science, Policy, and Endangered Species
- 97 Downloads
This chapter looks at efforts to conserve endangered species at Cabeza Prieta—in particular the Sonoran pronghorn. The preservation of pronghorn is an important component of the contemporary political and scientific landscape of refuge management. Border conservation presents unique challenges when it comes to endangered species, but the myriad of federal agencies working in and around Cabeza Prieta also serve to bolster species conservation efforts. Endangered species conservation offers an opportunity to increase the presence and power of the nation-state in the region, which contributes to the coevolution of conservation and militarization on the nation’s southern border.
