Earlier this year, there were 49 WMAs across Texas devoted to research, demonstration of proven wildlife management techniques, and conserving the natural habitat that the wild things of Texas need to survive. Now, thanks in part to private donations through Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation, there are 50.

This latest acquisition, the 5,458 acre XO Ranch in Palo Pinto County, is one of the best remaining examples of Cross Timbers habitat left in the state. In the future, wildlife research and habitat restoration will take place here that will help Texas Parks and Wildlife biologists better manage the land for the wild creatures we all treasure. This could lay the groundwork for further research to establish healthy populations of species like bobwhite quail and Texas horned lizards.

Watch this video to learn more about a TPWD wildlife research project that is exploring ways to bring back the Texas horned lizard.

TPWF staff in Dallas were thrilled to meet Sabrina Gordon on a recent Friday afternoon. The young Frisco resident celebrated her 10th birthday in August, and instead of having friends bring gifts, she asked party guests to help her raise money for a good cause.

Sabrina’s mom sent us an email about it: “As an animal lover and native Texan, she did not hesitate in choosing the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation as the charity of her choice. She has raised over $250! Her intention is to encourage young kids to follow in her footsteps.”

We invited Sabrina and her mom to our offices and learned first-hand of her passion for Texas wildlife. Choosing to donate to our species conservation fund was a perfect fit. Want to follow in Sabrina’s footsteps? Donate today.
