Madrean Archipelago Biodiversity Assessment Observations (MABA-MABA)

Sky Island Alliance's MABA project is a visionary initiative to catalog, protect, and restore one of the world's premier biodiversity hotspots. Over the next few years we will inventory the wildlands and wildlife of the Sonoran Sky Islands, a region of incredible biological wealth, while implementing community-based conservation, restoration and education activities that are key to the integrity of natural and human environments.
