Project Bobcat began in Summer 2013. This local citizens' group sought to legislatively end the trapping of these iconic and treasured animals around Joshua Tree National Park. MBCA sent a letter of support to the Governor in September 2013. Those early efforts not only resulted in bobcat protection legislation, but continuing efforts in 2014 and 2015 expanded to pursue a total statewide ban on bobcat trapping. MBCA Director Pat Flanagan's January 2015 letter on this issue, on behalf of all desert communities, explains the issues and goals for this ongoing campaign. In a subsequent letter about the bobcat trapping issue, sent June 8, 2015, MBCA supported a statewide ban on bobcat trapping.
