Many national wildlife refuges have partnering nonprofit organizations, often called Friends groups, which serve as advocates and assistants for a Refuge. These civic associations have the ability to reach out to the surrounding community for assistance on refuge projects and for local support on conservation issues. Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge is fortunate to have an outstanding “Friends Group” called the Wheeler Wildlife Refuge Association (WWRA). The WWRA was formed in July 1998 and its purpose “to promote conservation, awareness, and appreciation of Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge and to provide assistance to Refuge environmental education programs and other conservation efforts on the Refuge”.
