Through a lease agreement the Friends of Wye Marsh and the Canadian Wildlife Services have developed a working relationship for the stewardship of the National Wildlife Area and the interpretive centre. The goals NWA’s for Environment Canada – Canada Wildlife Services in general are: “The management approach for a NWA is to protect and conserve habitat for migratory birds and other wildlife species (plant and animal, including species at risk) and to provide public access that is non-detrimental to the wildlife, for purposes of research, interpretation, and recreation.”
