Susan Sorrells is one of the locals. She grew up in nearby Shoshone and now owns the tiny tourist town.

A big believer in both ecotourism and the power of nature, Sorrells already has carved out several acres of property as a refuge for wildlife including the Shoshone pupfish, which also was thought to be extinct until it was rediscovered in the area in the 1980s. Now Sorrells is working with the vole team to restore some habitat for the endangered rodent on a half acre right in the center of town.
It's the least she can do. After all, her great-grandfather, R.J. "Dad" Fairbanks, founded Shoshone and likely played a role in wiping out the voles that used to live there.
Sorrells said Fairbanks was a freighter who ran a mule team into Death Valley in the late 1800s. To feed his team and protect his livelihood, he diverted spring water in the area to grow hay instead of bulrush.
"I don't blame him for that," she said. "It was a different time."
Sorrells said she's excited to be a part of the effort to return the vole to Shoshone.
"We are looking forward to creating habitat that would really bring the voles home to where they were first discovered," she said.
