Send Water to Wildlife

Arizona is in a cycle of long-term drought. For our wildlife, this means less drinking water and a bigger fight for survival, especially during the dangerously hot and dry summer months.

As part of our mission to conserve and protect wildlife, the Arizona Game and Fish Department maintains 3,000 wildlife waters, including manmade catchments, built in locations all around the state. These stations provide life-saving hydration for all manner of wildlife all year long, from scurrying chipmunks to thirsty eagles to bugling elk.

It’s not an easy task. It costs more than $1 million annually for the Arizona Game and Fish Department and our partners to deliver water to these sites every year, with some of the most remote areas requiring helicopters to reach them. Since AZGFD does not receive any general fund tax dollars, we rely on conservation heroes like you to help fund costs such as vehicle maintenance, new trailers, and catchment repairs and upkeep.

No matter the challenges, it’s worth it to give our wildlife a fighting chance at survival.
