Did you know that one of the best ways to help wildlife conservation over the coming year is to buy a 2012 Arizona hunting or fishing license?

Hunters and anglers have known the conservation benefits of buying a license for years. But it’s important for those who don’t hunt and fish to understand that buying a hunting or fishing license is actually one of the best ways to support wildlife conservation in the state.

The dollars provided by license sales help manage for sustainable fish and wildlife resources for future generations to enjoy. That includes not just hunters and anglers, but birders, hikers, photographers, wildlife watchers, and other wildlife enthusiasts.

License dollars help fund habitat improvement projects or protection projects that benefit both hunted and non-hunted species. They also help fund game surveys, enforcement of wildlife laws, and public access and recreational opportunities for Arizonans.

Now is a great time to buy your 2012 license because it is good for the entire calendar year, so you can maximize your hunting and fishing enjoyment.

Remember—even if you don’t hunt or fish, you can help wildlife conservation efforts by buying a license.

Licenses can be purchased at any Game and Fish office (see for locations), at more than 300 license dealers across the state, or online at
