Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge is located on 118,000 acres of natural landscape located in southern Arizona. The refuge was created in 1985 to reintroduce the endangered Masked Bobwhite Quail back into the wild. This refuge is a sanctuary for many plants and animals as well as to our visitors.

People from all over the world have visited the refuge to explore the grasslands, wetlands and the extraordinary Brown Canyon. BANWR is known for wildlife watching, nature photography, hunting and wildlife special events.  The Friends of Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge invite you to discover our special place that is full of history, adventure, and stunning natural beauty.
