Along the banks of the Laguna Madre, Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) is one of the largest remaining protected wild areas in the lower Rio Grande delta. Loma and coastal brushlands are accompanied by freshwater lakes and ponds, mudflats and beaches. Here, the elusive ocelot, a small cat whose numbers are estimated to be less than 100 in the United States, quietly prowls the brushlands; Aplomado falcons soar above coastal prairies; Kemp’s ridley sea turtles nest on the Gulf beaches; and the incredible diversity of bird species attracts wildlife watchers from around the world.
