Mission Statement

Mojave Desert Land Trust protects the Mojave Desert ecosystem and its scenic and cultural resource values.

Description

MDLT has preserved more than 55,000 acres of critically needed wildlife habitat. Conserving 55,000 acres means that tens of thousands of endangered Joshua Trees have been preserved. 15,000 acres of desert tortoise habitat is protected. 6,000 acres of national parks have been created or 25 square miles added to the National Park Service. 17,000 acres of land preserved inside of our national parks or 27 square miles. 6,000 acres have been added to our National Wilderness system and 14,000 acres preserved inside our desert wilderness areas. 3,400 acres of wildlife linkages vital for breeding and migration are preserved. Tons of garbage, debris, and more than 500 tires have been removed.
The Wildlife Society awarded us the 2011 "Conservation of the Year Award" and in 2013 the Desert Tortoise Council presented us with the "Glenn R. Stewart Award" for habitat preservation.
MDLT employs land specialists and trains volunteer land stewards for the monitoring and restoration of MDLT-acquired lands -- currently 363 parcels or 18,328 acres.
