Seeing What The Landscape Would Be Without Urbanization

Large parts of the Jersey Shore, especially around the Barrier Island, used to be large wetlands. Urbanization has taken over the areas over the past 100 years already. The Edwin B Forsyth National Wildlife Preserve is an exception in the otherwise very developed coastal areas.

This nature area is very important habitat for birds, waterfowl, snakes, turtles and other wildlife. The refuge is more than 40.000 acres large, and forms an important breeding area and steppingstone in Atlantic flight routes of migrating birds.

Want to know more about the wildlife refuge and what species and habitat is provides, seeĀ Edwin B Forsythe Wildlife Refuge.
