National Wildlife Refuge System at Risk

Wilderness_logo_5_sm
Just two days after the USFWS National Wildlife Refuge System celebrated its 114th birthday, we learned President Trump's Fiscal Year 2018 Budget is filled with dramatic and damaging cuts to conservation programs. Instead of a birthday gift that would alleviate the current budget crisis in the Refuge System, the budget proposal would close refuges, stop much needed conservation initiatives and bar the public from enjoying nature's last vestiges of wild.

Do you cherish America's wilderness?

Without a natural legacy, we leave nothing to future generations. Please consider taking action - call your federal reps and ask them to oppose slashing the National Wildlife Refuge System budget.
