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.
Located in South Salem, NY, the Wolf Conservation Center (www.nywolf.org) exists to educate people about wolves and their valuable role in the environment, and to help protect their future in the wild. The WCC is home to ambassador wolves that visitors can observe in spacious natural enclosures. We also have over 20 wolves as part of our participation in Species Survival Plans for critically endangered Mexican Gray Wolves and Red Wolves.
