U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge Watchable Wildlife List In southeastern Arizona, the mix of deserts, mountains, grasslands, elevation changes, and the northern limits of many subtropical species make this geographic area one of the most biologically rich regions of the world. Some species are here because the core of their distribution is in the nearby Sonoran Desert, the Sierra Madre mountain range to the south, or the Rocky Mountains to the north. A number of birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians are here at the northern edge of their range and are found nowhere else in the U.S. Some exist only in isolated sites within this region. Located in southern Arizona, Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge was established 1985 for the reintroduction of masked bobwhite quail and for restoration of natural landscapes and their native wildlife. The refuge features several distinct groups of interdependent plants and animals, or biotic communities. These are semi-desert grassland, the cottonwood/willow riparian area, and Brown Canyon’s sycamore/walnut community with adjacent evergreen oak woodland. This rich combination of grassland, wetland, and sycamore/oak canyon supports a wide array of wildlife. Listed here are mammals, reptiles, and amphibians recorded on the refuge and where they may be found. Birds are on a separate checklist. The refuge has not been thoroughly studied, and other species and locations may be present.
