The National Wildlife Refuge System is committed to building partnerships which encourage conservation and preservation of our natural and cultural resources. Scientifically-informed and technologically-based stewardship of our public lands, waters, wildlife and special places must be collaborative efforts between the Refuge System, other government agencies, and private organizations if conservation efforts are to succeed.
