The NWRA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, national membership organization, established in 1975. The NWRA’s mission is to protect, enhance and expand the National Wildlife Refuge
System (NWRS), lands and waters set aside by the American people to conserve our country’s diverse wildlife heritage. Over the years we have worked to make the Refuge System stronger and better able to address the growing challenges of conserving wildlife in our country.
Urge Congress to adequately fund the Refuge System & LWCF in FY15!
Wednesday, June 18, 2014
The House and Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittees are hard at work crafting funding bills for the Department of the Interior – including funding for the National Wildlife Refuge System, Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and numerous other essential conservation programs!
Please urge Congress to fund the Refuge System at $476.4 million and provide $178.3 million for Refuge System land acquisition through the LWCF.
