I'll try E please Nyack

 

BTW, out of interest I was looking at top petition creators and signers and see you're way up there.. Congrats.

I don't sign to get records, but having signed well over 4000 wonder why it's not recorded.

Hello, George- thats a good question- to which I dont have the answer- I have signed over 8000 myself and am not listed either. Not that I really care- I just sign most petitions and write petitions hoping to make a difference, if not with the petitions- then at least redeeming the butterfly credits. So? I dont really keep track of what happens on that Leaderboard- only that my butterfly credits are correct everyday. (Thanks for the Congrats!)

 

How's Fred, George?

Protect Endangered Sonoran Pronghorn

 

PETITION:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/126/606/834/protect-endangered-sonoran-pronghorn/

 

 

  • Target: President Barack Obama, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Assistant Secretary Fish and Wildlife and Parks David Hayes
  • Sponsored by: Animal Advocates

Even though the Sonoran pronghorn have been protected under the Endangered Species Act since 1967, the population very nearly died out in 2002, when a 13-month drought wiped out all but 21 animals. Endangered Sonoran pronghorn are now living in the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge in southwestern Arizona.

 

Roads, fences, railroad tracks and human development have reduced and fragmented the wide spaces they need in which to forage successfully. The species is also sensitive to human disturbance, including military aviation activities in the Goldwater Range, and both the illegal activity in the border region and the law enforcement response. Chances of surviving climate change without continued intervention may be slim.

 

We ask to you do not open the refuge for human recreation.

Sonoran Pronghorn (Antilocapra americana sonoriensis)

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonoran_Pronghorn

 

The Sonoran Pronghorn (Antilocapra americana sonoriensis) is an endangered subspecies of pronghorn found in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona and Sonora. There are believed to be around 200- 300 animals currently existing, up from 14 estimated in 2002.

 

 

Basic Facts About Sonoran Pronghorns

http://www.defenders.org/sonoran-pronghorn/basic-facts

 

Known as "prairie ghosts" because they are so elusive, the Sonoran pronghorn (Antilocapra americana sonoriensis) is the fastest land mammal in North America. Smaller and lighter in color than other pronghorn subspecies, it is uniquely adapted for survival in harsh arid conditions.

Sonoran pronghorns are reddish brown on their backs and sides and have lighter colored undersides. They have bright white markings on their heads and necks; males have black faces and black patches on the sides of their necks. 

Male Sonoran pronghorns sport large black pronged horns, while females have short black horns.

Diet

Sonoran pronghorns eat herbs, cacti, and desert grasses.

Population

Approximately 100 Sonoran pronghorn remain in the wild in the United States. There is also a small population held in a captive breeding program on the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in southwest Arizona. There are approximately 650 pronghorn in Mexico.

Range

Historically, Sonoran pronghorn traveled across vast expanses of the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, California, and Sonora, Mexico. Currently it is confined to fragments of its former range, with only three small populations remaining – one in southwest Arizona, and two separate populations in Mexico.

Behavior

Sonoran pronghorn have evolved in unique ways to adapt to the harsh desert environment. For example, it can erect its stiff bristle-like body hair in patches to release body heat in extremely hot weather. The pronghorn’s exceptional speed and excellent vision help it to avoid predators and take advantage of scarce desert forage.

 

Reproduction


Mating Season
:
September and October
Gestation: 250 days.
Offspring: 1 fawn; twins when there is abundant food.
Does are ready to mate at 16 months and bucks are ready by one year of age.

 

 

Threats

Competition for food plants by cattle grazing in the Sonoran region was the primary factor in the steep decline of the pronghorn. This practice has now been halted in the areas where pronghorn remain. The species is also sensitive to human disturbance, including military aviation activities in the Goldwater Range, and both the illegal activity in the border region and the law enforcement response. Roads, fences, railroad tracks and human development have reduced and fragmented the wide spaces they need in which to forage successfully.

In addition to these historic and ongoing threats, climate changes already underway in the southwest are threatening to push the pronghorn over the edge of extinction. Survival of fawns is determined mainly by the amount of precipitation falling in the winter and by the length of the drought interval until the monsoon rains start in the summer. Winter precipitation governs the amount of forage available to nursing females, and summer precipitation determines the food available to the young, newly weaned fawns. Adult survival is also influenced by precipitation, probably because in dry conditions, animals are forced to forage in valleys where the vegetation is denser and predators are less visible.

The U.S. population very nearly died out in 2002, when a 13-month drought wiped out all but 21 animals. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service intervened to prevent extinction by providing water and forage and initiating a captive breeding program, and is planning to establish a second population at nearby Kofa National Wildlife Refuge. These actions have helped the numbers to creep back up, however the species’ chances of surviving climate change without continued intervention may be slim. As climate change increases the length and intensity of droughts in the Sonoran desert, the pronghorn is likely to face extreme difficulty reproducing successfully.
