A collage of animals fishing at refuges
Humans aren’t the only beings that fish at national wildlife refuges. Clockwise from upper left above: At Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois, you might see a common merganser with a mouthful. At Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, you might find a Kodiak brown bear searching for salmon. At John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum in Pennsylvania you might catch a great blue heron in mid-gulp. At Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge in Texas, you might see an osprey swooping for a meal.
