AAF Efforts Pay Big! Thanks to everyone who has helped!
NFWF Grant Extended
AAF just learned our NFWF grant has been extended and expanded! The project has been extended to the end of 2017 at the $430K level. This amount plus our required match (which is running
well ahead of the award amount requirement) will put us well past the $1M mark invested over the 6 year project period. We are already seeing the benefits
of our efforts with this project as numerous sightings are a regular occurrence in an area that once saw most of its pronghorn wiped out.
AAF Receives 2nd Grant!
On May 23, 2013 the Arizona Antelope Foundation (AAF) found we were one of just 22 nation-wide recipients’ funded to
carry out our proposed Youth & Wildlife Conservation at Las Cienegas Grasslands Project. Using these grant funds the AAF will expand an existing youth
education opportunity focused on black-tailed prairie dog (BTPD) reintroductions and the AAF’s Southeast Arizona Grasslands Pronghorn Initiative in
the summer season of 2013. Read more HERE.
