2020 Refuges

At the start of 2020, we sent several teams of amazing ACE interns to contact visitors about their experiences on the refuges listed below.
However, we paused our research efforts during April 2020 to ensure the health and safety of everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. Please practice safe distances (from people and wildlife) while visiting your favorite National Wildlife Refuge. We are excited to announce that we’ll be back on the ground sampling refuges in 2022!
