As humans struggle with the drought, wildlife has an even harder time adapting. Siskiyou County’s deer, elk, bear, bobcat, mountain lion and bird populations are in danger as creeks dry up and lakes evaporate into hot air. That’s where guzzlers come in.

When it rains, water is collected in the tanks … which allows thirsty wildlife to step down and reach the water.
