AN AMERICAN SERENGETI

Where the Deer and the Antelope Play

More than a million acres of grassland along the Texas-New Mexico border form the last remaining fragment of the once vast Chihuahuan desert. The Otero hosts the most genetically pure herd of pronghorn antelope on earth. Threatened black-tailed prairie dogs abound here. Golden Eagles patrol for unsuspecting prairie dogs and other prey.

More than 100 mining and drilling claims are pending across this little known and precious wildland. Its future remains uncertain.
