St. Johns National Wildlife Refuge is a part of the United States National Wildlife Refuge System. Established in 1971, it is a 6,255 acre piece if land that was set aside to protect the dusky seaside sparrow. Unfortunately, the species was declared extinct in 1990, but the area is still filled with other sorts of birds and animals such as the indigo snake, American alligator, and crested caracara. Make sure to call before taking a trip to St. Johns National Wildlife Refuge because the land is sometimes closed off to the public for a variety of reasons.
