Protect birds and fish in the Upper Mississippi River Wildlife Refuge

The Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge is a globally important bird area, and it is home to endangered whooping cranes. It’s also a popular outdoor recreation spot for local communities.

The Refuge was recently protected when a federal judge sided with Defenders and our partners to block construction of a destructive $492 million transmission line that would cut through this habitat.

Now those developers are appealing the judge’s decision so they can build this massive power line through the Refuge anyway. We need to urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to uphold protections for this refuge and put a stop to this destructive development!

Don’t let this massive industrial power line development destroy habitat for birds and fish in the Upper Mississippi River Wildlife Refuge. Add your signature below!
