Friends of Bon Secour

National Wildlife Refuge

Welcome to the friends of Bon Secour wildlife refuge

The Friends of Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge are taking a walk on the wild side, and we’d like you to join us to learn more about the National Wildlife Refuges we support!

Our fundamental mission is to increase awareness and support for our coastal wildlife refuges in Alabama and Mississippi that include the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, the Mississippi Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge, and the Grand Bay National Wildlife Refuge. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we rely on grants and donations in order to promote wildlife stewardship, support refuge land acquisition, and to provide advocacy and financial support for refuge habitat management and visitor services.

How you can help

Funding and donations for Friends of Bon Secour provide advocacy and financial support for refuge habitat management and visitor services as well as support refuge land acquisition.

Named one of the 10 Natural Wonders of Alabama, the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge comprises 7,000 acres on five parcels of land. The Refuge is the last large parcel of undeveloped land on the Alabama Gulf Coast. It offers four hiking trails that range in difficulty from easy to strenuous and provides an up­ close and personal experience for nature lovers.
