Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge

Near the Atlantic coastal community of Sebastian, Florida, lays a little island in the Indian River Lagoon, a dot on the map really but with a very large international footprint. This is Pelican Island, and its surrounding 5400+ acres of protected waters and lands, are known as the Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge.

Back in December of 2009 my niece, Shay and I took a little excursion to Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge. It was really fun and educational. If you’re ever in the area I highly recommend stopping by.

The Refuge holds the distinction of being our nation’s first national wildlife Refuge!
