Since 2010, the National Wildlife Refuge System has embarked on strategically and collaboratively addressing the mounting challenges faced by conserving America’s wild plants, fish, animals and their habitats in our rapidly changing world.
The efforts have culminated in an array of plans and products that strive for new ways to conserve America’s wildlife and wildlife places. Plans focus on SCIENTIFIC EXCELLENCE at a LANDSCAPE SCALE for the BENEFIT OF A DIVERSE PUBLIC while nurturing the NEXT GENERATION of conservation leaders with the ultimate goal of increasing efficiency, transparency, and relevance to better deliver wildlife conservation for the American people.
Explore all the tools and plans that were created to help us all realize this vision.
The publication entitled, Conserving the Future: Wildlife Refuges and the Next Generation, is the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s bold, new vision for the National Wildlife Refuge System. The Service released Conserving the Future as the culmination of 18 months of study and public conversation about conservation and the future of the Refuge System.
From the vision’s 24 Recommendations a numbers of strategic plans and products have been produced. To explore these, visit: SCIENTIFIC EXCELLENCE on a LANDSCAPE SCAPE for the benefit of a DIVERSE PUBLIC while nurturing the NEXT GENERATION of conservation leaders.
