Native American Lands Conservancy

For over a decade, the Cadiz Project has posed an unacceptable threat to the Mojave Desert, its wildlife, its water, and its immense cultural significance for the peoples who have called the Southern California desert home since time immemorial.

The NALC expresses its full opposition to the Cadiz Project and commits its full effort to protecting tribal culture and preserving sacred lands. We welcome the new scientific and peer-reviewed study published in the Journal for Environmental Forensics as it highlights the true nature of the springs in the Cadiz area, and supports what our organization has known all along, that this project will cause irreversible harm.
