St. Vincent

National Wildlife Refuge - Florida

The St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge is located in northwestern Florida, on the barrier island of St. Vincent, off the coast of Apalachicola. St. Vincent NWR occupies a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico. Little more than a quarter mile out in the Gulf, the refuge is a short distance from the mainland and access is limited to boat traffic. Visitors can enjoy long solitary walks on the beaches or venture into the interior of the island and explore the ten habitat types located here. Since 1990, St. Vincent NWR has been one of several coastal islands in the southeast where endangered red wolves are being bred. The wolves are allowed to roam the island and the pups raised here are taken (after weaning) to Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in North Carolina.
