Big Pine Key National Key Deer Refuge
The Big Pine Key National Key Deer Refuge was established in 1957. It contained 9,200 acres of pine rockland forests, tropical hardwood and mangrove hammocks, and various kinds of wetlands. 23 different endangered species call this island home. Visitors can do many things in the refuge. Freshwater fishing is not allowed, but saltwater fishing is allowed in most of the refuge. There are opportunities to fish on the shore, but the best fishing can be reached by boat or bridge. This little island has the largest Key Deer population in the world. They are free to roam around the islands and are usually out early in the morning. Snap a photo of one if you get the chance! If you are into photography or nature viewing, then this is a great place for you to visit. There are many different kinds of tropical and exotic birds that you can view and take pictures of as well. They also offer environmental education seminars and classes for both children and adults.
