Lone Pronghorn

TPWF is supporting efforts to restore pronghorn populations in the Trans-Pecos. Critical program activities such as translocation will help ensure that pronghorn will roam the desert grasslands of West Texas for generations to come.

Pronghorn Under Fence

  • Pronghorn are an ancient North American species, dating as far back as the Pleistocene, and are the only surviving member of the family Antilocapridae.
  • Running at speeds of up to 55 miles per hour, pronghorn are the fastest land animal in North America due to the fact that they evolved to escape a long-extinct species of North American cheetah.

Powderhorn Trans-location

During the week of January 25, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), Borderlands Research Institute, and the Trans-Pecos Pronghorn Working Group assembled a team of biologists, private landowners, wildlife veterinarians, and graduate students from various institutions and organizations across the state.

This dedicated team worked around the clock to ensure a smooth and successful translocation of pronghorn to their new home in the Trans-Pecos, where good range conditions, pronghorn friendly fences, and range management have helped the pronghorn population begin to recover.
