I wonder how much of their time is spent relaxing and how much is spent stressing about predators. This bedding location seems to have a big blind spot. #wildlifephotography #wildsheepfoundation #desertbighorn #bighornsheep #fullcurlfriday #desertsheep #bighorn #desertbighornsheep

This past weekend we experienced firsthand the effects of bighorn sheep restoration in Texas. Stewards of the Wild went to the top of Elephant Mountain WMA, home to around 160 Bighorn sheep that produce a surplus of lambs each year. Desert bighorn were completely extirpated from Texas by the early 1960s. Thanks to the efforts from @texasparkswildlife, Borderlands Research Institute, Texas Bighorn Society and others, there are around 1,500 bighorns in Texas today.

Climate change is about so much more then the extinction of the Joshua Tree in #joshuatreenationalpark It serves as a reminder that we live in a complex scientific and diverse, ever-changing and interacting biotic ecosystem on Earth. Joshua trees were helped spread by sloths bigger then humans. The sloths ate the leaves on the tree and the seeds sprouted in one of their future poohs #fertilizer They helped give the Joshua Trees their unique spacial pattern. The extinction of the Shasta sloth was caused by the climatic change following the ice age. Today, a single species of moth ensures the fertilization and the tree ensures the moths survival. Moths are a causation of the trees unique structure and an example of coevolution in tree species. "The relationship between the yucca moth and the Joshua tree is the most remarkable fertilization system ever described" -Charles Darwin
