“ProtectYOURCanyon.org” is a collaborative website sponsored by the Arizona Wildlife Federation and Arizona Trout Unlimited. This website was established to share information and generate support for the existing ban on new uranium mining in and around the Grand Canyon. The content focuses on the sportsman’s and outdoor enthusiast’s perspective regarding the risks of uranium mining to wildlife, habitat, and local economies and draws on the best known scientific understanding and academic studies as well as the on-the-ground observations of hunters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts.
The Arizona Wildlife Federation (AWF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation founded in 1923 to take politics out of fish and game management and to promote the management of Arizona's natural resources on a scientific basis. AWF is dedicated to educating, inspiring, and assisting individuals and organizations to value, conserve, enhance, manage, and protect wildlife and wildlife habitat.
Trout Unlimited (TU) was founded in 1959 in Grayling, Michigan by a group of anglers who successfully sought to change the state’s reliance on hatchery production of trout into a program that focused on protecting and restoring fish habitat. Today, TU is the nation’s largest grassroots cold water conservation organization with a mission to conserve, protect and restore North America’s trout and salmon fisheries and their watersheds.
