About the Complex

512LaurenMitchellThe Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge Complex headquarters can answer any questions you may have about St. Johns NWR.


St. Johns NWR is managed as part of the Merritt Island NWR complex. A National Wildlife Refuge Complex is an administrative grouping of two or more refuges, wildlife management areas or other refuge conservation areas that are primarily managed from a central office location.  Refuges are grouped into a complex structure because they occur in a similar ecological region, such as a watershed or specific habitat type, and have a related purpose and management needs.  Typically, a project leader or complex manager oversees the general management of all refuges within the complex and refuge managers are responsible for operations at specific refuges. Supporting staff, composed of administrative, law enforcement, refuge manager, biological, fire, visitor services, and maintenance professionals, are centrally located and support all refuges within the complex.

Other refuges in the Merritt Island NWR complex include:  Lake Woodruff NWR and the Merritt Island NWR

The Refuge Complex headquarters is located at SR 402, Titusville, FL 32796, about 5 miles east of the Max Brewer bridge.
