Public Lands

As our state’s population grows, so too do our roads, communities, fence lines, pollution, effects and more. Our wildlife is getting closed in, the migration corridors critical to their health are getting cut off, and their habitats are degrading. Animals such as mule deer, elk, and pronghorn are more and more obstructed from their historic ranges and the areas they need for safe food, water, shelter, and breeding – threatening their long term survival and an important part of Arizona’s way of life.

Fortunately, we have the ideas needed to stop this trend and protect our state's wildlife so that the next generation, and the one after that, can continue our hunting, fishing, and other wildlife traditions.

Wildlife management is a balance. That’s why AWF works with experts from across Arizona to find the best way to conserve our resources and provide access to hunters, anglers, and other outdoors people. 

To achieve our goals, AWF:

  • Provides teachers with educational resources to teach about wildlife in their classrooms.

  • Utilizes grassroots programs like Garden for Wildlife, Volunteer for Wildlife, and BOW to educate Arizonans on our native wildlife and how to protect them.

  • Advocates for the recovery of dwindling wildlife populations, protecting endangered species, vital wildlife corridors, and wildlife-centered conservation polities.
