Proposal for wildlife refuge expansion scrapped

October 1, 2014

LITTLE ROCK — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has dropped plans to gradually buy land to nearly double the size of a wildlife refuge in southeast Arkansas.

The federal agency had proposed adding about 125,300 acres to the Dale Bumpers White River National Wildlife Refuge. David Viker with the National Wildlife Refuge System told the media there wasn't enough money or local support to justify moving forward.

The nearly 161,000-acre refuge was established in 1935 to protect ducks, geese and other migratory birds. It also is home to the only native black bear population in the state.
