The Cape May National Wildlife Refuge is located within the Cape May peninsula, the southernmost point in the state of New Jersey.Because of its unique geography, the peninsula offers stunning views of sunrise to the east over the water of the Atlantic Ocean, and of sunset to the west over the water of the Delaware Bay. The Refuge currently protects over 11,000 acres of peninsula habitat in its 3 refuge units: the Great Cedar Swamp Division, the Delaware Bay Division and the Two-Mile Beach Unit.These 3 units represent unique, diverse habitats: forested hardwood swamp, river estuary and ocean barrier island.LARGER MAP
