Journaling: The Barrier Island Sanctuary Land Management and Education Center is centrally located in heart of the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge in South Melbourne Beach on A1A. The 34 acre sanctuary invites visitors to explore the diverse habitats of the barrier island. The Barrier Island Center provides hands-on educational experiences for visitors to the Refuge through interactive exhibits, nature films, special programs and a 1-mile long “dune-to-lagoon” nature trail. The Center also has an accessible ocean view boardwalk and picnic tables.
The Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge is part of the United States National Wildlife Refuge System, located along a 20 mile section of coastline from Melbourne Beach to Wabasso Beach. The 900 acre refuge was established in 1991, to protect the Loggerhead and Green sea turtles. The refuge provides nesting habitats for approximately one-fourth of all sea turtles nesting in the United States. About 15,000-20,000 sea turtles nests are laid annually, mostly loggerheads, green sea turtles, and some leatherbacks. The refuge also provides habitat for several other threatened and endangered species.
