Nature Conservancy and the Laguna Madre

The Nature Conservancy announced on June 28 that it donated its 1,500-acre South Padre Island Preserve to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for inclusion in the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge. This is in addition to the 23,000 acres TNC donated in 2003.

The Laguna Madre, one of only five hypersaline lagoons in the world, provides internationally significant habitat for birds, mammals and fish, important to both commercial and recreational fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.
