Welcome to the Arizona Wildlife Conservation Strategy (AWCS)! This marks an exciting new era in wildlife conservation in our state. By utilizing the AWCS and its many conservation tools and resources, we can work together to help conserve our precious wildlife and their habitats for generations to come.
The AWCS is the official State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) for Arizona. Unlike previous iterations of Arizona’s SWAP, the AWCS creates a fully interactive web-based version of our long-term conservation strategy, offering several tools and data resources for public use, including species distribution models, habitat profiles, Conservation Opportunity Areas (COAs), and so much more.
We hope the AWCS will greatly improve the public’s knowledge and engagement with the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s conservation efforts. We invite all Arizonans to join us on this journey, to work together to help in the conservation of wildlife throughout Arizona.
