Water for Wildlife: During Phase I of the “Water for Wildlife” initiative, the San Antonio Bay Partnership is working in conjunction with the Aransas National Wildlife to rehabilitate four wells.  The project will also strive to create public awareness of Whooping Crane freshwater needs by generating publicity about the well refurbishment through an outreach and education campaign.

Generous contributions from the following organizations have made this project possible:  AEP, Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program, Friends of Aransas and Matagorda Island National Wildlife Refuges, San Antonio River Authority, and Texas State Aquarium – Wildlife Care, Conservation, and Rehabilitation Fund.  However, the project still needs more financial support.  If you would like to contribute to the “Water for Wildlife” initiative and help install water wells on the Refuge or contact James Dodson at 361-649-1518, jdodson27@gmail.com.
