12 Photos of Animals That Remind Us to Appreciate National Wildlife Refuges
I try to remember my camera when I go explore a National Wildlife Refuge, because they never disappoint. There’s an extensive list of species that depend on these lands for survival, and if you’re lucky, you might see some of them. These havens for wildlife deserve celebration, and since it’s National Wildlife Refuge Week, I’ve compiled photos of animals at wildlife refuges across the country. If it happens to inspire a fall adventure, you can find a National Wildlife Refuge near you with this interactive map!
