The Urban Wildlife Refuge Initiative Implementation Team is looking for suggestions on a name designation for the National Wildlife Refuge System’s new urban presence initiative and need YOUR vote! The goal is to engage communities to nurture an appreciation of wildlife conservation and foster a better understanding of the role of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the Refuge System in conserving natural resources by creating new urban partnerships in ten diverse urban cities across America by 2015.
