Vision Statement

The Next Generation Sonoran Desert Researchers is a network of individuals and institutions committed to the rich social and ecological landscape that spans the mainland Sonoran Desert, the Baja California Peninsula, the Gulf of California, and the US-Mexico borderlands. This interdisciplinary network will address the research and conservation challenges of our time within this binational region. Deeply committed to the spirit of the Sonoran Desert, the N-Gen will (1) catalyze research and biocultural collaboration, (2) develop an innovative research and conservation agenda, and (3) influence decision makers in both countries to promote a conservation ethic that matches the grandeur of the landscape.
