Welcome to the online portal of AmericasWildlife.org, where we will continue to come together to shape the future of the National Wildlife Refuge System and America’s wildlife.
The Conserving the Future conference, which took place on July 11 – 14, 2011, was the largest gathering regarding the future of the National Wildlife Refuge System in over a decade. AmericasWildlife.org now hosts a variety of resources and archives that are vital to implementation of the vision for the Refuge System and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s commitment to transparency. To gain full access, you need to be logged in to the social network.
AmericasWildlife.org is proud to be a place where the bonds of collaboration and friendship can continue to form. Although the conference in Madison, Wisconsin, is over, the online community behind this movement is still vital in finalizing the vision for the Refuge System and moving forward together in its implementation.
Our workshops featured leading professionals and thinkers from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and elsewhere. Review the topics you are interested in and access the related documents.
The final discussions around the draft vision and the beginning of planning its implementation took place during a series of facilitated discussions. You can still join the groups for the topics you are interested in, and check out all of the notes generated from the discussion topics, too.
