About Us

Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1984 when 340 acres were purchased from the West Indies Investment Company. The land was acquired specifically to protect nesting habitat of endangered leatherback sea turtles. An additional 43 acres have been acquired since then to conserve the Aklis pre-historic archaeological site and a stand of the endangered Vahl’s boxwood tree.

Our Mission

Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge’s primary focus is the conservation of nesting habitat for the endangered leatherback sea turtles.
