Thanks to Valer’s conservation efforts The Hunting for Gambels,Scaled and Mearns Quail is remarkable.This is due to a massive effort in Riparian and Grassland Land Management.The Ranch is an example of how things should be done.The property is  often used as a case study by various Conversation Organizations,State and Federal Agencies.Quail  Numbers fluctuate year to year mostly due to timely Summer and Winter rains.The El Coronado Ranch Habitat Program helps to  compensate for fluctuations in Gambels,Mearns and Scaled Quail Numbers ,ensuring that even in lean years the Quail Covey Numbers remain strong.
