The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, with support from the Public Service Network, announced the launch of a national public service (PSA) campaign targeting Hispanic families through Spanish-language radio. The series of 60-second Spanish-language radio spots connect listeners to the sights and sounds of nature on National Wildlife Refuges.

The PSAs contrasts everyday city sounds to the sounds of nature and reminds listeners of recreational alternatives within city limits. There are 561 refuges — one within an hour’s drive of most major cities — offering families a welcoming, safe and accessible place to reconnect with nature and enjoy outdoor activities.

The National Wildlife Refuge System, managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, represents the world’s premier system of public lands and waters set aside to conserve America’s fish, wildlife and plants. http://www.fws.gov/refuges/.
