We, the people of the Coachella Valley, must serve and protect the Bighorn Sheep because they are a species like no other. The Bighorn sheep could go extinct if we do not remove the threats that harm the species. They have been known to feast on certain types of plants. Specifically, oleanders, fountain grass and sahara mustard. Let me provide you information in regards to making sure we are doing our part to help the Bighorn sheep from going extinct. The Bighorn sheep is a species of sheep native to North America, that is known for its very large horns. They live in mountain regions like big bear mountain,San Bernardino Mountains, and many others. Bighorn sheep compete with each other using their large horns over food, dominance, habitats, and even mates. Male Bighorns have larger horns than females and females have less curvature in their horns than the males do. Bighorns have a lot of dangers and predators in their habitats, some habitats have bears and wolves, some have dangerously poisonous plants and flowers, and some habitats are around cities or towns and frequently get hit by cars. So the male Bighorns job is to hunt for food, protect the females and their offspring. All of us need to step up and take action so that these innocent animals don't die from invasive plants. Specific plants like Oleanders, have been known to be extremely poisonous. Oleanders have been known to kill other species besides Bighorn sheep. They have killed lizards, dogs, cats and rabbits. They also have been known to kill humans. And if you aren't taking the necessary precautions and remove these plants, anyone that comes into contact without knowing what these plants can do, could result in severe sickness or even death. These are the steps we should take in order to prevent the Bighorn and other from consuming or coming in contact these plants. Step 1 - Identify plants and safely remove them from your garden or surrounding property Step 2- Create a local group and ask your local nursery where there areas where Oleanders, Fountain grass or Sahara Mustard are growing wild and safely remove them. Step 3- Frequently mow your lawn or make your gardeners aware that they should remove these plants immediately. Step 4- Adopt a baby Bighorn- By doing this, you can control their environment by what they consume and give them extra attention and care. Now get out there and take the call to action! You will feel a sense of accomplishment knowing that you not only help prevent this species from going extinct but your also ensuring no other animal or human come in contact with the three leading plants that can cause sickness or death.
