Save the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard

The dunes sagebrush lizard survives in one of the smallest habitats of any lizard — a tiny area of oak-covered sand dunes in southeastern New Mexico and west Texas. This habitat covers less than 2 percent of all land in the Permian basin, but is threatened by oil and gas development and herbicides sprayed by ranchers.

The lizard has already declined by nearly 90 percent in Texas and by at least 20 percent in New Mexico.
