Site Leaders' Message

Come join us in exploring Arizona’s unique ecosystem in both Phoenix and the Grand Canyon to learn about wildlife conservation. We are all aware that the actions of mankind have been and continue to drive animals to extinction. This spring break, we will explore the different components of wildlife conservation within our very nation instead of somewhere far far away in Africa (which is also important).  Aside from being known for posh resorts, Phoenix is also home to interesting wildlife conservation agencies that provides many services such as removing wildlife from people’s homes or rehabilitating injured animals. Together, we will learn and reflect about the conservation of wildlife and our role in it all while having a grand ole time!!!
