The land in question: the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, a roughly 7,000-acre tract near Gulf Shores, Alabama. It’s called the Little Point Clear Unit — two parcels comprising 470 acres, enough land to accommodate 355 football games. It became a formal part of the refuge April 26.  Learn more...

    Shutterbugs at St. Marks

    February 28, 2018 | 3 minute read

    When St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge on the Florida panhandle was awarded a $5,000 grant to encourage mobile photography on the refuge, staff originally planned to offer a class to children with an accompanying adult.

After the refuge opened the classes to adults, more than 100 participants enrolled in the three-hour classes that have been offered in the last two years.  Learn more...

    Closure of Lee Road boat ramps to bank fishing due to visitors feeding alligators

    September 26, 2018 | 2 minute read

    A number of nuisance and aggressive alligators have recently been observed at the Lee Road Boat Ramp on the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. Most alligators are, by nature, nervous of human activity and will usually avoid close contact with people. However, if alligators are fed by people, some will lose their natural fear and will begin to approach when they see people. These alligators can be very dangerous and are termed “nuisance gators”.  Read the full story...
