The Cape May National Wildlife Refuge is a protected area on the Cape May Peninsula in Cape May County, New Jersey. It is part of the National Wildlife Refuge System and managed by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. Established in January 1989 with 90 acres (0.36 km2) acquired from the Nature Conservancy, it has since grown to more than 11,000 acres (45 km2) in size, and plans call for its further expansion to more than 21,200 acres (86 km2). It comprises three distinct and non-contiguous units: the Delaware Bay Division (in Middle Township), the Great Cedar Swamp Division (in Dennis Township and Upper Township) and the Two Mile Beach Unit (in Lower Township). Located in the Middle Atlantic coastal forests ecoregion, the cape provides habitat for large numbers of migratory birds.

  • Excellent hidden gem just south of Diamond Beach to walk, sit, birdwatch, meditate or pray. Very peaceful.... Beach only open October 1 to March 31 because of nesting migrating birds.
  • After a one year hiatus, the Federal Government is allowing us limited access to the Nature Trails and to our Nature Store that helps support our activities. A beautiful and educational way to spend a Saturday or Sunday.
