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.

Your generosity directly supports efforts to restore pronghorn to the Trans-Pecos region in West Texas. Make a gift today to ensure the future of this magnificent species.


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.

Learn about Borderland Research Institute’s (BRI) pronghorn restoration project in partnership with Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. TPWF helps fund BRI’s research to reestablish Texas pronghorns, the fastest land animals in North America.


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.
