During our vacation in Fort Myers, we are hoping to see a wildlife refuge. Are there any in the area
Yes, in fact the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, located on the barrier island of Sanibel, is only a short drive from your Fort Myers Beach vacation rental with a view of the lagoon.
It is famous for it’s pristine wildlife and some of the best bird watching in the U.S. This wildlife refuge is also part of the largest undeveloped mangrove ecosystem in the country.
