TNC quietly documents the nature of the lands Sierra Club, NRDC et al have been characterizing as "degraded": Many are ecosystemically intact and thriving, while some — such as the Ivanpah and Calico Solar proposal sites — are described as "Ecologically Core… largely undisturbed and un-fragmented, and support the conservation targets (species, ecological systems, springs and seeps) selected for this analysis. Their full protection is critical for long-term conservation of biodiversity in the Mojave Desert."
