National Wild Turkey Federation
The National Wild Turkey Foundation has been around since 1973 and they do habitat restoration for these magnifcent birds. One of the great things is that their work benefits all wildlife. There were about 1.5 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of dedicated work, that number hit an historic high of almost 7 million turkeys thanks to the tremendous efforts of our dedicated volunteers, professional staff and committed partners.
National Wild Turkey Federation activities in Southeastern Arizona
►NWTF is an active partner in the restoration of the Gould’s wild turkey to suitable habitats of Southeastern Arizona, including the Chiricahua, Pinaleno, and Galiuro mountains, in cooperation with private landowners, US Forest Service, and Arizona Game and Fish Department
►There are now an estimated 1,000 Gould’s wild turkeys in Southeastern Arizona
►Past habitat projects have included work in the Huachuca and Pinaleno mountains. These projects have involved NWTF Volunteers, BLM, USFS, and Arizona Game and Fish
►The Pinaleno Ecosystem Restoration Project (PERP) Stewardship Project is currently active on Mount Graham and will encompass over 3,000 acres of high elevation habitat work over the next 8-10 years in an attempt to reduce wildfire hazards. PERP Stewardship is a forest thinning project to reduce the number of small diameter trees, reduce the potential for catastrophic wildfire, protect the habitats of the Mount Graham red squirrel and the Mexican spotted owl, and enhance habitat for Gould’s wild turkey. Additionally, it will protect valuable infrastructure found on Mount Graham including cabins, campgrounds, roads, and interpretive sites. PERP will also serve to protect sites important to Native Americans found on the mountain.
►In 2013, NWTF partnered with Arizona Game and Fish, Yamaha, private landowners, and others to permanently provide public access to Frye Mesa on the north side of Mount Graham. Over 18,000 acres are now permanently open to the public for hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, and birding, among other recreational activities
