Aransas

National Wildlife Refuge - Texas

Aransas National Wildlife Refuge is situated on the southwest side of San Antonio Bay along the Gulf Coast of Texas. It also includes nearly the entirety of Matagorda Island, a 38-mile barrier island. The Civilian Conservation Corps Company constructed part of the spillway for Burgentine Lake, which serves as a major resting area for migratory waterfowl. Bird life includes ducks, herons, egrets, ibises, roseate spoonbills, and the endangered whooping crane, whose population has recovered significantly since the 1940s. Other fauna include American alligators, collared peccaries, snakes, and bobcats, which inhabit the refuge's grasslands, blackjack oak thickets, freshwater ponds, and marshes.
