It is this diverse, marsh-prairie-montane environment that gives Red Rock Lakes NWR its distinct character. Because of this diversity, the Refuge provides habitat for over a hundred species of birds and many rodents, carnivores, and bats.

The extensive marshes provide breeding areas for a number of waterbirds such as trumpeter swans, lesser scaup, sandhill cranes, white-faced ibis, various shorebirds, and colonial nesters. The marshes are also home to the tiger salamander, western toad, boreal chorus frog, and the Columbian spotted frog. Red Rock Lakes NWR also includes one of the two sandhills complexes in Montana and supports an assortment of shrub-steppe associated birds, invertebrates, and mammals.
