WILDLIFE IN ARIZONA

Help keep the Mexican Gray Wolf off the Endangered Species List. Certain animals are known as what’s referred to as a “keystone species”, which is any species that other plants and animals within an ecosystem largely depend on. If a keystone species is removed, the ecosystem would drastically change, and in some cases, collapse. Endangered species often regain a foothold in the wilderness with help from eco-engineers and non-profit organizations. Please join me in protecting the nine (9) animals in Arizona on the watch list of endangered species.

Endangered species in Arizona include12:

  • Yaqui Chub, a fish located in Leslie Canyon National Wildlife Refuge and West Turkey Creek.
  • Mexican Gray Wolf
  • Desert tortoise
  • Ocelot
  • New Mexican Rigged-Nose Rattlesnake
  • Black-Footed Ferret
  • Jaguar, whose populations have declined due to poaching and a loss of habitat.
  • Relict Leopard Frog, found in freshwater and only ever seen in Arizona, Utah, and Nevada.
  • Mojave Desert Tortoise.
