Includes: Black Point Wildlife Drive, Cruickshank Trail, Palm Hammock Trail, Oak Hammock Trail. Created from excess NASA land during the development of the United States space exploration program, the 140,000-acre Merritt Island Refuge is Central Florida’s principal wildlife habitat. Essentially, it is a huge expanse of chest-high salt marsh grass (with accompanying mosquitoes) punctuated by small ponds and hammocks, and mosquito control dikes dating from the 1950s. Thanks to its diverse range of habitats, coastal location, and semi-tropical climate, the refuge is home to twenty-one endangered or rare species, more than any other single refuge in the United States. These include bald eagles, manatees, peregrine falcons, gopher tortoises, osprey, and five species of marine turtles. Special Attractions: The best wintering waterfowl habitat on Florida’s east coast. Birding tours are offered frequently during the height of the migration. Also plenty of opportunity to see many rare and endangered animal species.
