Bobcat

Bobcat

Found only in North America, where it is the most common wildcat, the bobcat takes its common name from its stubby, or “bobbed,” tail. The cats range in length from two to four feet and weigh 14 to 29 pounds. Bobcats mainly hunt rabbits and hares, but they will also eat rodents, birds, bats, and even adult deer.

Latin name: Lynx rufus fasciatus

“I connect with Oregon’s high desert through my feet, my eyes, my sense of smell, and all the things I hear. Getting out there is a whole body experience.” Supporting ONDA, Helen says, not only connects her with wild landscapes, but is also a good investment. “I felt like if I gave them $20, they might squeeze $23 out of it.”

Stewardship Fence Building Timelapse

The Trump administration has formally begun efforts to dismantle the BLM sage-grouse plans that resulted from years of stakeholder input and scientific study.  These plans protect sage-grouse and the sagebrush habitat that is home to more than 350 species. But Trump and Secretary Zinke are pushing to undermine these critical conservation plans, risking further impacts to our public lands and continued sage-grouse population losses – all to benefit industry.
