Arizona's official state bird is the cactus wren, just one of the many animals that call the Sonoran Desert home. On October 19, the Arizona Chapter of The Wildlife Society will present the Wildlife First Symposium, sponsored by Arizona State University’s College of Technology and Innovation. The symposium aims to gather wildlife experts and interested community members to discuss conservation efforts for native Sonoran Desert wildlife. The event will feature numerous speakers from ASU, as well as from various organizations such as the Arizona Elk Society, Arizona Game and Fish Department, Bureau of Land Management, The Center of Biological Diversity, and others.
