Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge
Covering nearly 7,000 acres, the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge is home to beaches, sand dunes, scrub forests, fresh and saltwater marshes, freshwater swamps and uplands. It is home to hundreds of species including the endangered beach mouse and nesting sea turtles, as well as a critical stopover point for neo-tropical migrant birds passing through in spring and fall.
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
The Daphne Field Service office provides services to private citizens, federal and state agency clientele seeking federal or state approvals, state organizations, local governments, schools, other educational and community groups. Their goal is to inform the public about fish and wildlife resource issues.
Friends of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge
A group of citizens from all over the United States have banded together to form a Friends support group. Many members are out of state residents who winter on the Gulf. The organization functions primarily as an advocacy group, making telephone calls and writing letters as needed. It also functions as a non-profit private organization to accept donations and land to improve the refuge and to increase wildlife habitat.
