Share your perspectives on the future of AZ’s wildlife: Take a short survey

Posted September 4, 2020

Your responses will help AZGFD update its 10-year AZ Wildlife Conservation Strategy

 

PHOENIX — The Arizona Game and Fish Department is updating its 10-year conservation plan – the Arizona Wildlife Conservation Strategy (AWCS) – and seeks your input and perspectives in the early stages of the planning process.

The AWCS encourages focused strategic investments in the management, conservation, and mitigation of areas that will have the greatest benefit for wildlife using the best available science and working collaboratively with partners. The AWCS revision is slated to be completed in 2022.

Everyone in Arizona is integral to the success of the AWCS revision and implementation. Understanding mutual interests and needs, sharing data and information (where feasible), and developing collaborative strategies to implement the AWCS will maximize its effectiveness and our collective efforts to conserve Arizona’s fish and wildlife resources.

There will be several opportunities to participate in the revision of the AWCS, beginning with this short online survey. Please find 10 minutes to complete the SURVEY by September 15, 2020. All responses will remain anonymous, be shared in a compiled format, and be used to inform discussions with focus groups throughout the state as well as develop AWCS strategies and actions.

Thank you in advance for taking the time and making the effort to complete the survey, and for all that you do to conserve and protect Arizona’s fish and wildlife and their habitats.
