Please Leave Your Dog At Home

The "no dogs" policy at Wassaw NWR is in place primarily to protect the declining shorebird and seabird populations that rely on the beach and other areas for survival. In addition to protecting birds and other native wildlife, this policy is also in place to protect your pup. This wild barrier island is full of hidden dangers big (American alligators) and small (LOTS of ticks!). So please, while visiting this special place, be sure to do your part to protect wildlife, your pet, and your wallet (violators of this regulation will be ticketed and fined) by leaving all pets at home.
