Golf or Sheep?
The increase in California's population could be related to the record increase in golf courses in this area. Environmentalists are concerned about natural habitat being replaced by golf courses thatalso cause polluted runoff from heavy use of pesticides and fertilizers. A controversial golf course development in Southern California's Coachella Valley is facing criticism that it would destroy the habitat of the bighorn sheep, an endangered species found in this desert region. Cities argue that they benefit economically because golf coursesattract tourists and residents.
