Ray Sherbill Aids in Transfer of Ivanpah Desert Tortoise Research Facility

The Mojave National Preserve, in partnership with National Park Trust, Chevron and Molycorp recently dedicated the seven acre Ivanpah Desert Tortoise Research Facility. The dedication ceremony celebrated the facility's transfer to Mojave National Preserve. NPT assisted Mojave National Preserve as an interim steward while the transfer was being completed. Corporate attorney Ray Sherbill serves as secretary of NPT, which is dedicated to preserving parks today and creating park stewards for tomorrow. The new research facility allows scientists from the University of California-Davis and the University of Georgia to conduct research to test methods for increasing the survival of juvenile tortoises in their natural habitat. 

NPT is the nation's only organization dedicated to the completion, and the full appreciation, of the American system of local, state and national parks through the identification of key land acquisition and preservation needs.
