Partnerships

Scenic view of Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge/USFWSThe National Wildlife Refuge System is committed to building partnerships which encourage conservation and preservation of our natural and cultural resources.

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

The primary partner of the refuge is the Amigos de la Sevilleta Friends Group.  This non-profit organization is dedicated to supporting Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge in the conservation of wildlife and habitats through environmental education and research.  The organization envisions a rich and healthy future for the refuge's ecosystem.  The Amigos and refuge staff have an outreach program in place to increase public awareness of Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge's research projects, conservation efforts, and its vast wild beauty.  Visit the Amigos de la Sevilleta to learn more.
  
Another partner of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the refuge is the Bureau of Land Management.  These two Department of the Interior Agency's jointly manage the areas' scenic San Lorenzo Canyon.  View the San Lorenzo Canyon site for more information.
