We support Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge and promote appreciation and conservation of wildlife and habitat.
The Friends are a model organization within the wildlife conservation community. We raise sufficient funds and support for Bosque del Apache to be able to maintain the level of conservation and leadership required to ensure that the wetlands and wildlife that they support are sustained.
The Friends’ 10-year strategy connects to Friends’ mission & vision and will use acquired funding to support five distinct activities -- SPEAR:
- Support the refuge.
- Partner with a variety of organizations that can contribute to the advancement of the refuge.
- Educate in conjunction with the refuge about environmental concerns, needs of wildlife, and conservation practices.
- Advocate for relevant preservation and conservation issues to help ensure that lawmakers make wise decisions about issues that matter to the refuge.
- Research – Friends will support the refuge’s research needs through project funding and grant management in collaboration with universities and other organizations that specialize in these areas.
