As our state’s population grows, so too do our roads, communities, fence lines, and pollution. Wildlife habitat becomes fragmented and the migration corridors critical to wildlife health and movement are impeded. At the same time, habitats are degrading from the effects of drought and misuse of the landscape. Animals such as mule deer, elk, and pronghorn are more and more obstructed from their historic ranges — the areas they need for safe food, water, shelter, and breeding — threatening their long term survival. Wildlife are an important part of Arizona’s legacy and AWF takes these threats seriously.
