Why We Need Wildlife Refuges

When humans move into an area, we like to make sure that it meets our needs for living. We knock down trees to make way for houses and streets. We pave over the grass and dirt to make roads and sidewalks. Humans need places to live, but so do animals. As humans continue to expand our homes, animals like birds and snakes and turtles and foxes have fewer and fewer places to live.
