Designated a National Wildlife Refuge in 1927, a variety of habitats exists within its vast perimeter, including tidal rivers, freshwater marshes, and bottomland-hardwood forests. Much of the area is accessible only by boat.

Located on the Atlantic Flyway, the refuge is home to wood storks, great blue herons, swallow-tailed kites, bald eagles, and purple gallinules. Also thriving in the waters of the refuge are alligators, manatees, and sturgeon. On land, one can find white-tailed deer, bobcats (as seen below), wild turkeys, wild hogs, foxes, squirrels, and more – making this refuge a pristine ecosystem despite its proximity to Savannah-area industry. The refuge is open to visitors seven days a week during daylight hours.
