A member of the refuge staff attended a meeting comprised of several land management agencies from southern Arizona; including National Parks Service, Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service, U.S. Air Force, Department of Defense, Tohono O’Odham Nation, Arizona Game and Fish Department and U.S. Fish and Wildlife.  The different agencies were asked to assist the U.S. Border Patrol in the production of a training video for new Border Patrol agents in Arizona.  This video will help orient the new agents with the ethical issues involved in preserving the natural landscape as well as the cultural aspects of our region.  The video is composed of a 20 minute segment that will show some of the issues on the border dealing with natural resources and instructions to the new agents on what they can and cannot do in the execution of their duties.  Following the initial orientation segment agents will be able to view individual videos on the different lands managed in the area that they are stationed in.  These videos will be narrated by a member of the representing agency and run approximately ten minutes.  The location videos will discuss the individual issues of that agency and give general guidelines that the agency would like to see followed on the lands it manages.
