The Endangered Sonoran Pronghorn

In Southern Arizona you might be lucky enough to see ⁠Sonoran pronghorns⁠. In this podcast, we learn from Stephanie Fuest, the lead wildlife biologist for the recovery of the endangered Sonoran pronghorn. She walks us through the history of the species in the area, recovery efforts, and best practices should you encounter one while riding. She also explains what is different about them, compared to pronghorns found further north.

Sonoran pronghorns can be found on several of our gravel bike routes in the southwest corner of Arizona that take you through the ⁠⁠⁠Cabeza Preita National Wildlife Refuge ⁠or the ⁠Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. ⁠ They both represent spectacular ecoscapes of Sonoran Desert beauty.
