In Focus: Season 3, Episode 2 – To conserve and protect

In the second episode of season three, we meet animal conservationists who are taking steps to protect and conserve native species. We’ll ride along to southern Arizona with a wildlife manager who prevents poaching with Arizona Game & Fish, visit a raptor rescue center in Cave Creek that nurses owls and other birds back to health, take a hike near Tucson with the former president of the Arizona Bighorn Sheep Society and journey to Pinetop with Arizona Game & Fish to see what they are doing to ensure the survival of the state fish: the Apache trout.

This story is part of Elemental: Covering Sustainability, a new multimedia collaboration between Cronkite News, Arizona PBS, KJZZ, KPCC, Rocky Mountain PBS and PBS SoCal.
