The New Mexico and Arizona Ecological Services Field Offices coordinated with other Federal agencies on the Southwest Endangered Species Act Team of the Southwest Strategy to organize and conduct interagency Endangered Species Act workshops in Phoenix, Arizona, from October 6 through 10, 2007.  The purpose of these workshops was to provide instruction and tools needed to prepare biological assessments, biological evaluations, and similar documents for section 7 consultation with the Fish and Wildlife Service.  The training cadre consisted of biologists from the Arizona Ecological Services Field Office, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Navy of the Department of Defense (DOD), and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).  These workshops received funding from the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, materials from the National Conservation Training Center (NCTC), and logistical support from the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA).  There were approximately 57 attendees at these workshops, including staff from Native American Tribes, BIA, BLM, AZ Game and Fish Department, AZ DOT, Army Corps of Engineers, NRCS, National Park Service, USFS, FWS, and several environmental consultants.
