Garry Rogers about this book: The Arizona Wildlife Notebook provides a look at the health of Arizona's native animals. I compiled the Notebook from data gathered by the Arizona Game and Fish Department and by specialists concerned with each species groups. After I finished organizing the book, I made a table of the conservation status of all the animals in the checklists. I discovered that more than half of the known Arizona species are in danger of extinction. The more I think about this, the more I feel it is headline news. Our educators, scientists, and political leaders should begin focusing on to solving the problems facing our native wildlife.
The Notebook is a basic tool for amateur and professional naturalists interested in Arizona Wildlife. The Notebook has references, checklists, and space for notes on Arizona amphibians, ants, birds, butterflies and moths, dragonflies and damselflies, fish, grasshoppers, lizards, mammals, snakes, and turtles. Anyone who is interested in the birds and other animals they see around their homes, their city, or their region can use the Notebook to record their sightings. Sightings tell us when and where a species is present. This is the first step that we can take to understand a species' health.
