About the Refuge

Established in 1989, Cape May National Wildlife Refuge ensures critical habitat for wildlife and hundreds of thousands of migrating birds each year. 

The refuge encompasses 11,500 acres within the Cape May Peninsula. Habitats such as grasslands, saltmarshes, bogs, maritime forests, and beachfront are home to a variety of wildlife including State and Federally threatened and endangered species.

Cape May Peninsula’s unique configuration and location concentrates songbirds, raptors, wading birds, and shorebirds on their annual migrations.

Come and enjoy one of North America’s top ten birding hot spots!

The headquarters at Cape May also manages Supawna Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.
