Established in 1903, the National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS), is the world’s premier system of public lands and water management set aside to conserve the country’s fish, wildlife and plants. Ranging from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, with over 19 million acres, to the Mille Lacs National Wildlife Refuge in central Minnesota, with a scratch over half an acre, there are an average of 10 refuges per state. This project seeks to explore the intricacies of these lands and discover what makes them essential.
