Proclamation 2416  (1940)  by Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Changing the Names of Certain Federal Wildlife Refuges
Delivered on July 25, 1940. Published in FR 2677, 54 Stat. 2717.

Whereas certain areas of land and water in the United States, its Territories, and its insular possessions have been reserved and set aside from time to time as refuges and breeding grounds for native birds, migratory waterfowl, wild animals, and other forms of wildlife, on which it is unlawful for any person to hunt, trap, capture, willfully disturb, or kill any bird or wild animal of any kind whatsoever, to take or destroy the nests or eggs of any wild bird, or to occupy or use any part of such reservations or to enter thereon for any purpose, except as permitted by law or by rules and regulations of the Secretary of the Interior, in order that the conservation and development of the natural wildlife resources may contribute to the economic welfare of the Nation and provide opportunities for wholesome recreation to the citizens of the United States; and


Whereas some of the States are setting aside areas of land and water for similar purposes, such action by the States being furthered by the act of Congress approved September 2, 1937 (50 Stat. 917), which provides that the United States shall aid the States in wildlife-restoration projects; and


Whereas it is fitting and desirable that the names of such Federal areas should distinguish them from projects of the States or from preserves under private ownership:


Now, Therefore, I, Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of the United States of America, do proclaim that the names of the Federal wildlife refuges listed below are hereby changed as indicated:
