Game and Fish Takes Home Emmys for TV Show

Earlier this month, our friends at the Arizona Game and Fish Department took home eight Emmy Awards for Arizona Wildlife Views, the department's TV show, from the regional chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).

Among the episodes and segments honored: an episode focusing on humpback chubs, bighorn sheep and bald eagles; a look at Glen Canyon Dam's effects on fish populations and the surrounding ecosystem; a segment on desert tortoises; and a story on a raccoon that survived last year's devastating Yarnell Hill Fire.

"We're very proud of the video storytellers who capture the diversity and natural beauty, as well as the unique challenges of conserving Arizona's wildlife," Game and Fish Director Larry Voyles said. "Our dedicated production team showcases the department's efforts to manage some of the more than 800 species in Arizona, and these Emmy awards are proof of the exceptional work they do."

Arizona Wildlife Views airs on PBS stations around Arizona. You can also watch episodes and segments at www.azgfd.gov/video.
