Arizona Wildlife Views, the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s award-winning television show, has once again been recognized by its peers for excellence in writing and communicating about Arizona’s outdoors and wildlife.

Producers Carol Lynde and Gary Schafer garnered three “Excellence in Craft” awards from the 2009 Outdoor Writers Association of America:

  • 1st place honors were awarded in the “Natural History” category for a story about the Fossil Creek renovation.
  • 2nd place honors were awarded in the “Outdoor Ethics” category for a story about National Trails Day.
  • 3rd place honors were awarded in the “Shooting Sports” category for a story about the Arizona Game and Fish Department Scholastic Clay Target Program.

In another awards competition, the 15th annual Communicator Awards honored Arizona Wildlife Views TV with an Award of Distinction in the “Nature/Wildlife” category, for a segment on the Monsoon Frogs of Arizona.

Lynde and Schafer, both Emmy award-winning producers and journalists, strive to make Arizona Wildlife Views the best show in the business. Awards like these from these prestigious organizations are a testament to their skills and abilities.

Arizona Wildlife Views can be seen on KAET Channel 8 public television in Phoenix, KUAT Channel 6 public television in Tucson, and on public access cable channels in most communities around the state. For more information, go online to www.azgfd.gov/TV.
