From the northern shores and tundra, across the western plains and mountains, to the swamps and southern shores, AMERICA'S WILDLIFE REFUGES honors and celebrates the centennial anniversary and incredible success stories of our nation's wildlife refuges. Larger than our National Park System, the National Wildlife Refuge System is the largest system of lands in the world dedicated to placing "wildlife first." Represented in every state and visited annually by more than 34 million people, there are 538 refuges covering nearly 95 million acres that provide protected habitat for over 2100 species of animals, including 260 of our most imperiled species. The spectacular color photography of Tom and Pat Leeson brings the dramatic beauty of the refuge lands and their inhabitants to life, while author Jeanne Clark tells the amazing success stories of American wildlife, including the brown pelican, the bison, the bald eagle, and the desert pupfish.
