The last post focused on some volunteer activities related to our oceans. Today, a switch to the opposite end of the spectrum: Deserts. Specifically, the desert of southern California. This interesting story discusses the controversy surrounding  “drinkers,” man-made structures designed to give wildlife places to consume water in the desert. Volunteers have been repairing them for years and now there’s a debate over whether or not we should be providing animal’s with artificial watering sites. Find more information about the group doing the repairing, Water For Wildlife here and find more info about the Mojave National Preserve here.
