The 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 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 National Wildlife Refuge System, private landowners and organizations, and other government agencies if conservation efforts are to succeed.
