National Wildlife Federation, Affiliates: End Malheur Refuge Takeover
01-29-2016 // Miles Grant

The National Wildlife Federation and its state and territorial affiliates are urging authorities to do all they can to ensure the remaining unlawful occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge leave peacefully, make the site safe once again for the public and wildlife, and hold the occupiers accountable to make clear that Americans won’t tolerate future Malheurs.

In the letter to Secretary Sally Jewell and Attorney General Loretta Lynch NWF Malheur Refuge Letter 012916, the conservation organizations that represent more than 6 million members and supporters expressed sorrow over the loss of life as a result of the illegal occupation as well as appreciation for the bravery of law enforcement and community members who have endured turmoil for weeks. “Community leaders and government officials in Oregon and beyond say they fear there could be major damage at the refuge as well as elevated safety risks for employees and local residents if the remaining occupiers are permitted to stay—and worse yet, copycat occupations and similar efforts elsewhere,” wrote the National Wildlife Federation and 37 affiliates. More Malheur Refuge Takeover
