Summary:

As many as 100,000 acres of wildlife refuge lands are being used to cultivate genetically engineered crops, according to U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service documents obtained by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility. A coalition of public health and environmental organizations, including PEER, sued the Bush administration to stop such farming of genetically engineered crops at the Prime Hook National Wildlife refuge in Delaware.
