Blackfooted Ferret


The blackfooted ferret was once the most endangered animal in North America. At one point only 18 were left in the wild. Bert Castro, Stuart Wells, and Larry Voyles talk about the success of the Blackfooted Ferret Recovery Program. The recovery program is a partnership between the Arizona Game and Fish Department, the Phoenix Zoo, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and others. The successful program has saved the blackfooted ferret from extinction in Yavapai County.
