Wildlife Conservation in Central Arizona—Welcome

Wildlife conservation has become critical for all Arizona species groups such as amphibians, birds, bats, and turtles.  Each article posted in this blog introduces a group, comments on conservation needs, and provides references and a species checklist.  Emphasis is on the species found in Agua Fria River Basin of central Arizona, and the habitats near the Agua Fria River in the town of Dewey-Humboldt.  Send questions or comments to the Agua Fria Open Space Alliance, Inc. at info@aguafriaopenspace.org.

The chicks peering out of the nest in the photograph are Great Horned Owls.  The nest is in a Cottonwood tree near the Agua Fria River.
