Emergency: Save Nevada’s Desert National Wildlife Refuge

July 2, 2020 | Call to Action

Desert National Wildlife Refuge is the largest refuge in the lower 48 and home to a wide range of rare and threatened species, including bighorn sheep and desert tortoises. But now this Nevada treasure is at risk of being dismantled by the Democratic-led House of Representatives.

In a stunning betrayal of public lands, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith of Washington state included a disastrous provision authored by public-lands enemy Rep. Rob Bishop of Utah in the National Defense Authorization Act.

Now Democrats on the committee have greenlighted giving 850,000 acres of the Desert Refuge to the Air Force for use as an industrial training center. This massive land grab will allow some of the most pristine habitat in the West to be bombed and destroyed in war games. And it’ll set a devastating precedent for giveaways of our national wildlife refuge system.

Join us in demanding that Chairman Smith and the Democrats reverse this massive giveaway to the military and stand up for the desert refuge and its precious wildlife.
