From the northern shores and tundra, across the western plains and mountains, to the swamps and southern shores, AMERICA'S WILDLIFE REFUGES honors and celebrates the centennial anniversary and incredible success stories of our nation's wildlife refuges. Larger than our National Park System, the National Wildlife Refuge System is the largest system of lands in the world dedicated to placing ""wildlife first."" Represented in every state and visited annually by more than 34 million people, there are 538 refuges covering nearly 95 million acres that provide protected habitat for over 2100 species of animals, including 260 of our most imperiled species. The spectacular color photography of Tom and Pat Leeson brings the dramatic beauty of the refuge lands and their inhabitants to life, while author Jeanne Clark tells the amazing success stories of American wildlife, including the brown pelican, the bison, the bald eagle, and the desert pupfish.

Ian Shive’s breathtaking photography pays tribute to the largest network of protected lands and waters in the world, America’s National Wildlife Refuge System. From the rugged reaches of Alaska to the vibrant coral reefs of the Palmyra Atoll, the National Wildlife Refuge System is dedicated to the preservation of America’s wildlife species and the places they call home. With more than 560 refuges and five marine national monuments, this is a system unrivaled in its diversity and value to the planet. The National Wildlife Refuge System covers 150 million acres across the United States, providing a safe haven for thousands of species, many of which are endangered. As a result, the refuge system is an essential force in protecting the splendor of America’s natural beauty from development and human habitation and ensuring that it persists for future generations. Refuge features the photography of Ian Shive, recipient of the Ansel Adams Award for Conservation Photography, who partnered with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to capture the beauty of these protected areas. Including essays from leading conservationists and environmental leaders, Refuge offers a breathtaking look at these remote and, in many cases, inaccessible areas. Featuring hundreds of stunning images, Refuge represents the greatest of America’s landscapes and wildlife, from the windswept outposts of the Aleutian Islands to the majestic prairies of Colorado, where buffalo roam wild. Refuge also provides useful resources, including a nationwide map of every location, including those open to visitors. As our world changes, these wild icons of America must persevere; this book gives us a clear view of what we stand to lose and why there is hope for the future.

The J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge was created as the Sanibel National Wildlife Refuge on December 1, 1945, during the administration of Pres. Harry S. Truman. The refuge was renamed in 1967 to honor J.N. "Ding" Darling, a syndicated editorial cartoonist. He wintered on Captiva Island and advocated the establishment of the refuge. Situated on a barrier island in Southwest Florida, the refuge is a jewel among the 553 units of the National Wildlife Refuge System. Sanibel, once cherished by the conquistadors, is renowned as one of the best places on the planet to collect seashells and watch birds. Now an island-city, incorporated in 1974, Sanibel is famous for its land development code, which helps make the city a special place. "Ding" Darling would not completely approve of what has happened to the island he once loved, but he would applaud the human effort that has saved the island's wetlands and nurtured his wildlife refuge.

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) consists of 19 million acres in north-east Alaska. It is administered by the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) in the Department of the Interior (DOI). It is a 1.5 million acre coastal plain on the North Slope of the Brooks Range that is currently viewed as one of the most likely undeveloped US onshore oil and gas prospects. According to the US Geological Survey, there is even a small chance that taken together, the fields on this federal land could hold as much economically recoverable oil as the giant field at Prudhoe Bay, found in 1967 on the coastal plain west of ANWR. That state-owned portion of the coastal plain is now estimated to have held 11-13 billion barrels of oil. The Refuge, and especially the coastal plain, is home to a wide variety of plants and animals. The presence of caribou, polar bears, grizzly bears, wolves, migratory birds, and many other species in a nearly undisturbed state has led some to call the area America's 'Serengeti'. The Refuge and two neighbouring parks in Canada have been proposed for an international park, and several species found in the area (including polar bears, caribou, migratory birds, and whales) are protected by international treaties or agreements. The analysis in this book covers, first, the economic and geological factors that have triggered new interest in development, followed by the philosophical, biological, and environmental quality factors that have triggered opposition to it. The book begins with a review of the nature and issues of the ANWR.
