Aransas National Wildlife Refuge Permits & Passes
 
Welcome to Aransas National Wildlife Refuge Passes & Permits
Aransas NWR is one of over 560 National Wildlife Refuges spanning the United States and managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The National Wildlife Refuge System is the only national system of lands dedicated to conserving our wildlife heritage for today and generations yet to come.

Aransas NWR was originally established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937 as a refuge and breeding ground for migratory birds and other wildlife, for use as an inviolate sanctuary, or for any other management purpose, for migratory birds and to conserve (A) fish or wildlife which are listed as endangered species or threatened species or (B) plants. The Refuge Complex is comprised of over 115,000 acres including the Blackjack Peninsula (Aransas proper), Matagorda Island, Myrtle Foester Whitmire, Tatton, and Lamar units. These areas provide vital resting, feeding, wintering, and nesting grounds for migratory birds and native Texas wildlife.

The Refuge is world renowned for hosting the largest wild flock of endangered whooping cranes each winter. Other native species you can see on the Refuge include the American alligator, javelina, roseate spoonbill, white-tailed deer, armadillo, and spectacular wildflowers.
