The National Wildlife Refuge Association defends the integrity of the National Wildlife Refuge System with advocacy, restoration and research.


The largest mosaic of public lands and waters in the world - the National Wildlife Refuge System - is threatened by insufficient funding, oil and gas exploration, border walls, development and road construction.

We work to protect these areas but we cannot achieve our goals alone. We need your help.

mission, our methods and the results of our four decades of advocacy.
