The Chihuahuan Desert region is approximately 800 miles long and 250 miles wide. It stretches from the Rio Grande Valley in southern New Mexico to the north of Mexico City and is surrounded by Mexico’s two great mountain ranges – the Sierra Madre Oriental and the Sierra Madre Occidental. Two rivers, the Rio Grande and its major tributary the Rio Conchos, provide the main source of freshwater for millions of people, and a multitude of wildlife species that make the Chihuahuan Desert the third richest desert in biodiversity, and one of the 20 most important ecoregions in the world. The rivers are the lifeblood of the desert. The balance of life here depends on them.
