Arizona Game & Fish are looking for help to find ferrets

Local

PHOENIX – Time to escape to Flagstaff because Arizona Game and Fish is looking for help to find an endangered species of ferrets.

They are looking for people to come out and help on September 19 through 23 and October 17 through 21. It will take places from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. so it’s perfect if you are night person just like the ferrets.

“Volunteers are reminded to include their full name, a contact phone number, month(s) and night(s) available to spotlight, and full names of others who also will be attending (a parent or guardian must accompany any youth under 18). Volunteers also should note any equipment they can bring, such as GPS, clipboard, headlamp, pen, binoculars, walkie-talkies, compass, cordless rechargeable spotlight, backpack or 4X4 vehicle.
These events will be conducted to assess the black-footed ferret population before winter. The objectives include trapping those animals that were not caught in the spring, to trap older ones that need a canine distemper or plague booster, and to trap juveniles (or “kits”) to administer vaccinations.”
