Review for Southern Plains Land Trust, Lamar, CO, USA
Southern Plains Land Trust (SPLT) is an incredible example of the importance of land conservancy. The short grass prairie is one of the most threatened ecosystems in the United States. Yet it's crucial to so many animals. SPLT has been able to protect areas in southern Colorado that have bounced back beautifully after years of harmful use. Prairie dogs, so essential to this ecosystem, have been able to live unharmed on these lands. That in turn has allowed other wildlife to flourish. The best part is that SPLT is continuing to add more and more land to its conservancy. The more land that is protected, the more a complex ecosystem can thrive.
