"The Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge is located in Southwest Florida in Collier County, between Marco Island and Everglades City, Florida. The refuge was first established in 1996 and covers 35,000 acres of the Ten Thousand Islands. The refuge includes both fresh and saltwater, and protects a large area of mangrove forest. The refuge is home to a wide variety of plants and animals. There are approximately 200 species of fish, 189 species of birds and innumerable plant species."
I was astounded the first time I visited this refuge because it was nearing dusk. The variety of birds was impressive and over shadowed by the spectacle of hundreds of White Ibis flying in to what is apparently their choice location to spend the night.
The refuge is located approximately 20 miles southeast of Naples, FL on the south side of U.S. 41.
