Ray Sherbill Helps Protect the Desert Tortoise
The National Park Trust recently entered into an agreement to provide interim stewardship of a new seven acre facility near Mojave National Preserve that will help save the area’s endangered desert tortoises. Attorney Ray Sherbill serves as secretary of NPT, which is dedicated to preserving parks today and creating park stewards for tomorrow. He says about the agreement: “NPT is a nimble and trusted partner to both government agencies and private companies and charities. We are glad we could quickly step in to fill a gap that will help protect more of these threatened tortoises and speed up the full use of this important Desert Tortoise Research Facility.”
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.
