You Are a Visitor in Someone Else’s Home
The Nambé Badlands is an important place for many.
This was true long ago, it is true now, and it will be in the future.
- When you run into a rattlesnake warming itself on the trail, realize you are in its home, and it is there for a reason.
- The owl you see roosting on a ledge hidden far down a narrow arroyo chose that place for its remoteness — away from people.
- When your dog has fun chasing that fast jackrabbit, your dog may have gotten some needed exercise, but the rabbit just lost valuable calories needed to survive.
- When you post your picture of a bobcat on social media it gives you a dopamine hit that feels good for a brief moment, but now the word is out attracting more people to the fragile habitat.
