Circle Ranch Game Cameras – Late Summer 2016

You are looking at the cheapest, fastest and most sustainable way to restore degraded desert grasslands: animal biodiversity.

Why is this so?

Because to be healthy, desert ranges need three things: (1) large, concentrated migratory bison herds or cattle grazed in a manner that mimics bison’s migratory patterns; (2) a lot of predators of all sizes; and, (3) a high, diverse population of prey species. Remove any of these and the system collapses.

Restoration ecology begins by increasing biodiversity, whereupon the system starts to recover.
