The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance is a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring, preserving, and protecting New Mexico’s wilderness and wildlands areas. In existence since 1997, the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance is committed to building the community and raising awareness of wildlife issues throughout the state.

In June 2016, the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks Conservation Act was reintroduced, ensuring the protection of eight wilderness areas within the area designated as a national monument. The Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks hosts 306 different types of birds along with 78 mammal species, including peccaries, mule deer, and cougars. A recent poll administered by the Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce showed that 78 percent of residents support the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks protection effort.
