If you enjoy wildlife and the outdoors, you won't want to miss the new season of Arizona Wildlife Views Sundays on Phoenix PBS Channel 8.
The Emmy-award winning television program will open your eyes to the best of our state's wildlife, wild places and outdoor adventure through spectacular video and compelling stories. It is produced by the Arizona Game and Fish Department and hosted by Jim Paxon.
The August premiere visited the "Wings Over Willcox" nature festival, which has become a staple for outdoor enthusiasts for more than 20 years. Then, see how Game and Fish and its federal, tribal and private partners are working to aid the recovery of the endangered Mexican wolf. Finally, you'll learn why well-intended efforts by people to try to "help" or "rescue" baby wildlife can have unintended, negative consequences.
The 13-week season will air at 4:30 p.m. each Sunday. Other show segments coming up this season include: -
1. The amazing evacuation of 600,000 trout from the Sterling Springs Fish Hatchery during the 2014 Slide Fire in Oak Creek Canyon north of Sedona,
2. The release of endangered black-footed ferrets on a private working ranch,
3. Efforts to save the state's California condor population,
4. Habitat improvement work to benefit pronghorn antelope, and
5. A study along with Northern Arizona University researchers to learn the impact of the state's largest wildfire on tree-roosting bats.
Last season, Arizona Wildlife Views won eight regional Emmy Awards in four different categories, and with more than 40 new stories, the show has something for everyone.
