ground squirrel (MGS) is endemic to the West Mojave Desert in California.
With nearly two-thirds of the currently hypothesized species range
in federal ownership and with increasing concern over the status
of the species due to perceived increases in threats, the DMG is
partnering with stakeholders to develop a collaborative, implementable
conservation strategy/plan for the long term protection of Mohave
Ground Squirrel and its habitat.
develop a comprehensive, implementable conservation strategy/plan
to ensure the long-term protection of Mohave Ground Squirrel habitat
and viability of the species.
OBJECTIVES OF THE CONSERVATION STRATEGY/PLAN:
- Foster communication
and coordination among participants and other interested parties
to identify opportunities for collaborative action to further
species recovery and the acquisition, protection, restoration
and management of MGS habitat. Objective
the extent of the MGS range Objective
ecological requirements of MGS Objective
and implement effective conservation measures Objective 5) Develop
and implement an adaptive management plan for long term viability
of the species
