Wildlife Encuentro with Saving Slowpoke

Event Description:

Join Whitewater Preserve and Saving Slowpoke for a chance to participate in some wildlife encounters and learn more about how we can further work together towards the conservation and protection of desert wildlife and wildlands for generations to come! The desert wildlife have amazing adaptations to survive this harsh environment, with the iconic desert tortoise demonstrating their incredible resilience. Though they are well suited for their natural habitats, they face many challenges created by human-impact. Thanks to grassroots campaigns like Saving Slowpoke, the future of these fantastic animals is hopeful! Saving Slowpoke’s mission is to “educate the public on Mojave Desert Tortoise conservation and the importance of desert habitat with a focus on underrepresented communities in the high desert.”

¡Acompáñennos para la oportunidad de participar en encuentros con animales locales y aprender más sobre cómo podemos seguir trabajando juntos hacia la conservación y protección del desierto y su vida silvestre! Los animales del desierto están bien adaptados para vivir en este clima extremo, y el mejor ejemplo es la tortuga del desierto. A pesar de ser muy adecuado para sus hábitat naturales, todavía se enfrentan a desafíos causados por los seres humanos. Pero gracias a campañas como Saving Slowpoke todavía hay esperanza!  La misión de Saving Slowpoke es  “educar al público sobre la conservación del Desierto Mojave y la importancia de los hábitat del desierto con un enfoque en  las comunidades subrepresentadas”.
