Our visit of the Wildlife Refuge in Vermont made me think of the important mission of the National Wildlife Refuge Association which is: To conserve America’s wildlife heritage for future generations through strategic programs that protect, enhance, and expand the National Wildlife Refuge System and the landscapes beyond its boundaries that secure its ecological integrity.
When we want to give esteem to the wildlife of our country we can plan a visit of one of the numerous Wildlife Refuge places in our country. Observing the wildlife can create very esteemful thoughts toward animals, plants and landscapes making us think about how to conserve this rich beauty of our country.
