WATER FOR PEOPLE AND DESERT BIGHORNS
The San Francisco Mountains south of the Arizona border in Sonora, MX, barely receive 3” of annual precipitation. The Wild Sheep Foundation, along with $10,000 from the Dallas Safari Club Foundation, has contributed $82,500 to drill a well to supply water to local people and provide a close and reliable water source for transport to fill water tanks for desert bighorn sheep and other desert-dwelling wildlife. Before this well, water had to be trucked daily 30 miles to supply the 78 families living in the area.
