Desert Wildlife Viewing

Where To Go

There are more than 450 national wildlife refuges managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in an effort to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife, including their habitats. The National Wildlife Refuge System consists of over 90 million acres throughout the U.S.

Wildlife refuges offer unique opportunities for the public to observe and view plants and animals in their natural habitat. They are also a good place to learn about ecosystems, endangered species and the special adaptations of desert life.
