“There has traditionally been bipartisan support for hunting expansions on refuges, which is one of six statutorily-designated priority uses of the nearly 100 million-acre system as described in the 1997 National Wildlife Refuge Improvement Act…It is our strong hope that this Administration will protect ongoing and continued access to our nation’s wildlife refuges and ensure that our sportsmen and women have the opportunity to access our great outdoors. We urge the Administration to abandon these settlement discussions and strongly defend this access for Americans.” — Congressional Western Caucus, April 12, 2022

In Episode 267 of District of Conservation, Gabriella discusses three updates: Earth Day, an update to Center for Biological Diversity vs. USFWS, and an Arkansas black bear collar project from Blood Origins.
