You will be amazed when you hear that US permits the planting of genetically engineered crops in the nation's protected wildlife refuges. The National Wildlife Refuge System, managed by FWS, is a network of more than 150 million acres of priceless wild lands and waters set aside for conservation and management for the benefit of all Americans. FWS is legally authorized to permit any use of any area within the National Wildlife Refuge System as long as the agency determines that such uses are "compatible with the major purposes for which such areas were established." FWS responded to environmental groups' court filings by sidestepping the substantive issues and instead asking the court to dismiss the case based on the agency's recent decision to suspend GMO planting.
