Bombay Hook Refuge celebrates 75 years of conservation

Each year, thousands of migratory birds stop at Bombay Hook during migration.

Birdwatchers flock to see them.

The 16,000 acre refuge along the coast of Delaware is a birding destination and an important vestige of natural coastal area along the Atlantic coast. Since 1937, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has managed the refuge for migratory birds and waterfowl, and many other animals benefit from this work.

This weekend, we celebrate Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge’s 75th year!
