Assistance Needed In Providing Water For Wildlife

AZ G & F

6/17/02


     The Arizona Game and Fish Department is asking for donations to help provide water for wildlife during the current dry weather spell.

     Current drought conditions have resulted in the initiation of a statewide “Drought Response Plan” due to water shortages at wildlife catchments, tanks, and drinkers. Although many large mammals such as deer, elk, antelope and bighorn sheep use these waterholes, all wildlife from amphibians to reptiles to birds benefit from these catchments. Unfortunately, the anticipated statewide water hauling demand to these water developments appears to be beyond the department’s logistical and monetary capabilities.

     Recent drought indexes and computerized weather models indicate that there appears to be no immediate relief in sight for Arizona’s dry weather conditions. Consequently, the extremely dry conditions found throughout Arizona are anticipated to extend through the summer “monsoon” months and into the fall and winter of 2002. Therefore, the department is soliciting funds to help pay for private water hauling and maintenance contractors to assist with the department’s water hauling, emergency maintenance and repair capabilities.

     To date, the department has received monetary commitments totaling $65,000 from groups including the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the Arizona Elk Society, the Arizona Mule Deer Association, the National Wild Turkey Federation, Arizona Bowhunters Association, Yuma Rod and Gun Club, Mule Deer Foundation, Mogollon Sporting Association, and the Wildlife Conservation Council.  The department whole-heartedly thanks these groups for their generous contributions at this time of need.  But the work is not yet done.

     Game and Fish recognizes that drought conditions are normal in the arid southwest and that indigenous species have evolved the abilities to survive in these unique conditions. However, the current extreme drought conditions may be beyond many wildlife species’ ability to survive and propagate. Through cooperatives efforts, the department hopes to alleviate some of the extreme effects of the drought around critically identified waterholes in all areas throughout Arizona.

     Individual donations can be made to “Water for Wildlife” Fund, c/o Wildlife for Tomorrow Foundation, 2221 West Greenway Road, Phoenix, AZ 85023.

This topic, and the wildfire issues that will burn about 300,000 acres when it is all said and done will be devastating to Arizona.  The money spent on the wildfires takes money away from other needed areas like wildlife.  Lets all chip in, even if we dont live here.  This board may be originated in Ca.  but lets all look at the big picture, it may be your state/wildlife that is in need next.............
