Of the 665,400 acres within Kofa National Wildlife Refuge, 547,719 acres are designated wilderness, making it the second largest wilderness area in Arizona. The important designation helps ensure this amazing desert landscape is protected for future generations. Wilderness designation offers protection from logging or mining and prevents the construction of permanent roads, vehicles or structures.
Kofa National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1939 for the protection of desert bighorn sheep and other native wildlife following a 1936 campaign by the Arizona Boy Scouts. The Kofa Wildlife Refuge is located northeast of Yuma and southeast of Quartzsite in the Yuma Desert region of the Sonoran Desert.
