A Great Honor

One of the Best!

The Vieques NWR was awarded a great honor in 2015, when the general public voted it the fourth best national wildlife refuge within the entire Refuge System. This refuge offers great natural beauty and it is the second largest conservation area in all of the Puerto Rico Archipelago and the U.S. Virgin islands. It is considered to be a remote location, yet it is also technically an urban refuge; providing year around access to thousands of visitors. The VNWR borders the population center of Vieques, is within 20 miles of an urban population of 100,000+ people and within 40 miles of an urban population of 1,000,000+ people.
