Conservation & Management

 

With nearly 800 animal species and the variety of landscapes found among more than 50 million public acres of land, few places offer the species diversity found in Arizona. While other states and countries struggle to conserve the few species they have left, Arizona’s great abundance and diversity of native wildlife can be attributed to careful management and the important role of the conservation programs the Arizona Game and Fish Department has developed.

Arizona’s management of both game and nongame species as a public resource depends on sound science and active management. Without strict agency oversight and management, the fate of many of these species would be in jeopardy.

The Department's Game Branch is responsible for protecting and managing game wildlife populations and their habitats to maintain the natural diversity of Arizona, and to provide game wildlife oriented recreation opportunities for present and future generations.  

Much of Arizona’s natural biological diversity is composed of nongame species, wildlife that is neither hunted nor fished in a traditional sense. The purpose of the Department’s Nongame Branch is to protect, restore, preserve and maintain nongame and endangered wildlife species.
