In the New Mojave Trails National Monument

In the New Mojave Trails National Monument
I’ve been describing the historical highway that crosses the brand-new Mojave Trails National Monument, but Route 66 is not the main reason for preserving this land.

This pregnant lady and her yearling lamb are more important to many supporters of the new park. The Desert Bighorns and other wild creatures need a wide natural corridor connecting Death Valley National Park, Mojave National Preserve and Joshua Tree National Park.

The new Monument will now begin to acquire more land to achieve this. And figure out better ways than just a road sign to help the wild ones get across the frightening highways.

I can begin to appreciate the vastness of this place, certainly a place I would not want to be without a plentiful supply of water.

Nice to hear they are trying to provide a corridor for them.

Crossing roads can always be tricky especially at night when many animals are moving about.

One project I read about dealt with Elk getting hit, installing signs that usually get ignored just wasn't working so what they did is outfit several cows from the herd with radio transmitting collars, when they approached the road the collars would send a signal that triggered flashing lighted signs along the road warning wildlife was on the road ahead, after they cross and move away from the road the signs shut down.
