Humane Society of the United States Ballot Initiative
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has now entered the Arizona ballot initiative process for the 2018 election cycle.
Here is the link to their ballot initiative application:
Their goal with this action is to get Arizona voters to reject a century of sound scientific wildlife management from our Arizona Game & Fish Department biologists, and turn over the management of wild cats to the ballot box, with an emotion based, non-factual initiative.
Catalina Sheep Reintroduction Program
The ADBSS and the Arizona Game and Fish Department are working together to reintroduce bighorn sheep into the Santa Catalina Mountains. Here is a pic of the first Lamb born to our new herd in the Catalina Mountains near Tucson. This is exciting!!!
This type of intensive, multi-year project will take an extraordinary amount of work and funds to see it through successfully. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to this effort, click here. For more information about the program...
