Mission

Transition Habitat Conservancy protects transition zone and wildlife corridor ecosystems and their scenic, agricultural, and cultural resource values in the West Mojave Desert. We provide education about the fragile and inspirational nature of our desert plants, animals, and ecosystems to connect people to nature.

Notes from the Nonprofit

Transition Habitat Conservancy is a nationally accredited land trust that focuses on land acquisitions and habitat stewardship in the West Mojave Desert. With the support of the local community, a dedicated board and staff, and successful partnerships with local, state, and federal agencies, THC has acquired nearly 7,000 acres of important habitat, and we have helped improve thousands of additional acres in the Southern California Desert. We are authorized by the State of California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to hold mitigation lands and endowments; we have a cooperative agreement with the Bureau of Land Management for a hydrologic survey of all springs and seeps in the California Desert District and a BLM assistance agreement to help manage ongoing restoration efforts; and we have two approved Conceptual Area Protection Plans with the California Wildlife Conservation Board.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
