Interior Establishes New Wildlife Refuges in WY and TN

The two sites become the 569th and 570th in the National Wildlife Refuge System.

The U.S. Department of the Interior has announced the establishment of two new national wildlife refuges. The Wyoming Toad Conservation Area and the Paint Rock River National Wildlife Refuge in Tennessee become the 569th and 570th units of the National Wildlife Refuge System under the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

“Nature is essential to the health, well-being, and prosperity of every family and every community in America. National wildlife refuges help connect Americans to a diverse array of public lands, while also serving as a crucial means of protecting wildlife and conserving habitat,” said Secretary Deb Haaland. “Through locally led collaborative conservation, these two special landscapes are now protected as part of our shared natural heritage and accessible to everyone.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Haaland to seek the Lord’s wisdom as she heads the Interior Department.
  • For Director Martha Williams as she oversees the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
