Most research on the refuge is conducted by professors and their students from nearby University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM). Current and recent research includes nest success and recruitment of alligator snapping turtles, sampling of benthic macroinvertebrates, and surveys of invertebrate prey for game fish.
