The Clark County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan provides conservation for 78 species of plants and animals, including the desert tortoise and their habitats. Protecting these species and their habitats reduces the chance of them becoming threatened or endangered in the future. Plants and animals need one another and all need healthy habitats to survive.
The interaction of these species and their environments makes the continuance of life possible for all species, including humans.
