Partnerships

Ringneck redhead ducks on refuge pond/W. RadkeThe National Wildlife Refuge System is committed to building partnerships, which encourage conservation and preservation of our natural and cultural resources.

Partnerships with the Refuge System bring innovative approaches to solving land management issues in the most protective manner.  Scientifically-informed and technologically-based stewardship of our public lands, water, wildlife, and special places must be a collaborative effort between the Refuge System, private landowners and organizations, and other government agencies if conservation efforts are to succeed. 

Throughout the history of the San Bernardino Refuge, staff has worked with many area landowners in the United States and Mexico to complete conservation or restoration projects on their lands including the following: 

Cuenca los Ojos Fundación  
Malpai Borderlands Group
Slaughter Ranch
Rebuilding a Pond
Chiricahua Leopard Frogs 

Partners for Fish and Wildlife is a program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that has been restoring and enhancing fish and wildlife habitat on private lands.  It provides cost-sharing and technical assistance to non-federal landowners, including private landowners, local governments, native American tribes, educational institutions, and other entities.  The program generally involves wetland, grassland, and/or riparian restoration efforts.
