Arizona’s fragile ecosystem, including native wildlife, can be adversely affected by irresponsible OHV trail use.
Arizona ranks among the top five states in the nation for the number of native wildlife species and among the top ten for overall diversity of vertebrates. With over 900 species of wildlife, OHV users are bound to interact with wildlife while riding. Arizona’s growing population presents significant challenges to Arizona’s natural resources and habitats. Responsible OHV use includes protecting the wildlife, their habitats, and other native resources whenever encountered.
