The Wildlife Contracts Branch is one of the many work units at the Arizona Game and Fish Department that engages in actual wildlife research. Recently, this branch began publishing a newsletter focused on highlighting many of these research projects. Each newsletter focuses on one project and takes the reader through the various steps in the inquiry process. As a result, these documents can make excellent resources to show students examples of real-world wildlife inquiry.
The downloads below are arranged in order of newsletter release date. They are all PDFs under 3mb.
