Climate Change: Joshua Trees Have Had Enough!


Joshua Tree Is First Plant to be Placed on the California Endangered Species Act

Health Editor’s Note: Joshua trees have existed in the Mojave Desert for 2.5 million years, through ice ages and periods of warming, but at the current rate of climate change they will not survive until the end of this century.  

This tree has become the first plant to be placed under the protection of the California Endangered Species Act. Studies will determine how to develop a recovery plan and to best protect this plant from climate change as well as industrial development.  

So, for now it is illegal to cut down, damage or remove a Joshua tree without special permits. This is a good thing for the Joshua tree and for humans….Carol
