Abstract

The peninsular pronghorn (Antilocapra americana peninsularis Nelson) was described and its historical range was defined by Nelson of Baja California, Mexico (1912, 1925). In 1993, we conducted an aerial survey of the peninsular pronghorn historical range to determine present distribution and general habitat condition. The historical range has been reduced approximately 90 percent. The Vizcaino Desert, where some 200 individuals are currently found, is the last refuge for this endangered subspecies. Recommendations are listed for future restoration of the subspecies and its habitat.
