The Arizona Game and Fish Department manages more than 800 native species and the public had a chance to visit with come of them on Wildlife Day in November.

This free family friendly event was designed to allow the public to meet their Wildlife neighbors up close, while helping raise funds for the AZGFD Wildlife Center.

"The Wildlife Center is often the first stop for many Wildlife needing lifesaving care," said AZGFD Wildlife Education Program Manager Mike Demlong. "Wildlife Day helps us to educate the public about our diverse species and to leave people with a new respect and admiration for our state's abundant wildlife."

The Wildlife Center is operated by AZGFD with a small budget from the Heritage Fund, a voter-passed initiative that provides for Wildlife conservation and education through Arizona lottery ticket sales. It also receives some financial and volunteer support from the Adobe Mountain Wildlife Auxiliary (www.azwildlifecenter.net) and the general public.

Monetary contributions will be graciously accepted from those wishing to support the relocation of the AZGFD Wildlife Center, outreach education programs, and the department's efforts to care for Wildlife treated at the Wildlife Center.
