Protecting, Promoting, and Enhancing America's Wildlife Heritage for Future Generations

National Wildlife Refuge Association

The National Wildlife Refuge Association is committed to protecting the world's largest network of lands and water, spanning over 850 million acres, designated for wildlife conservation. Based in Washington, DC, they advocate for all types of wildlife conservation efforts and monitor for policies and legislation that might undermine vital conservation efforts. The National Wildlife Refuge Association works in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other conservation organizations – including outdoor recreation interests, habitat protection and restoration groups, and state and local governments – in the hopes that we all collaborate to achieve the most effective change. Their approach to conservation covers three vital areas: building conservation constituencies, advocating for wildlife conservation with decision-makers, and conducting on the ground collaborative conservation with the Refuge System and landowners. By engaging both citizens and the government, the National Wildlife Refuge Association creates a holistic approach to conservation. As the only national advocacy organization dedicated to promoting and protecting the National Wildlife Refuge System, their work is needed now more than ever.
