Take Action

Save Desert National Wildlife Refuge!

The Air Force wants to take control over a significant portion of the Desert National Wildlife Refuge for a military testing and training range – with detrimental impacts on wildlife, recreation, cultural resources and other public values.

If this is allowed to happen, the majority of the refuge would be used primarily for military training that could include aerial bombing, ground exercises and other harmful activities.

This refuge provides the highest quality habitat for desert bighorn sheep, mule deer, mountain lions and an abundance of other species.

Tell the Air Force you oppose military takeover of Desert National Wildlife Refuge!
