The 43rd Annual Bighorn Sheep Count numbers are in!


The 43rd Annual Sheep Count is in the books and was a big success this year! Lots of bighorn observed and all counters returned safely.

This year we tallied 332 bighorn, which replaces the 2011 count as the second largest tally in sheep count history at Anza-Borrego. The weather was hot and humid on days one and two, with a nice break in the humidity for day three.

The Anza-Borrego Desert Bighorn Sheep Count always needs more volunteers, all are welcome to count. We hope you will join us next year, July 3-6 2014!
