New Mexico Desert Bighorns Need Your Support

WILD SHEEP FOUNDATIONIf you are interested in desert bighorn sheep in New Mexico, please consider a tax-deductible contribution towards cougar management, to help continue New Mexico’s successful restoration of desert bighorns. In 2012, New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (NMDGF) offered 15 new desert bighorn hunting licenses, due to the steady increase in bighorn sheep numbers over the past decade, largely resulting from pro-active, strategic cougar management. After being added to New Mexico’s endangered species list in 1980, desert bighorns were down-listed in 2008, then eventually de-listed in 2011.

The attached flyer provides detailed information on this restoration, as well as information on how you and your interested friends may donate to help continue this ongoing effort. By February 28, 2013, the Wild Sheep Foundation and our New Mexico Chapter are trying to raise $10,000, to assist NMDGF. For those who donate in the next 20 days, a ‘surprise’ drawing for “donors-only” will be held Thursday January 31st , during the 2013 WSF Sheep Show convention in Reno. This fundraising appeal will be highlighted on Wednesday night January 30th, as well.
