CARE Group Requests $900 Million to Support the Refuge System

This week, the Cooperative Alliance for Refuge Enhancement (CARE) group, chaired by the National Wildlife Refuge Association, released their comprehensive report requesting Congress and the Administration to appropriate $900 million in annual federal funding to support the National Wildlife Refuge System.

The CARE coalition is comprised of 23 wildlife, sporting, scientific, and conservation organizations that span the political spectrum, representing 16 million Americans, who value outdoor recreation and wildlife conservation.

CARE was created in 1995 to advocate for robust funding for the Refuge System—lands for Americans across the country to enjoy and where wildlife can thrive. The 2017 report highlights the impact and importance of the Big 6 wildlife-dependent recreational activities on national wildlife refuges.
