Why I'm endangered

How we are saving them

My plan to save them:

Habitat loss as desert areas were converted to argriuculture combination of overgrazing cultivation, mining operations and the introduction exotic plants

A Recovery Plan has been developed survival ofthe species and population are protected within the Carrizo Plan Natural Heritage Reserved and a number of Federal lands

My plan to save them is to take them to their habitat and take all the other animals out so they cant eat the Giant Kangaroo Rats
