Colorado has some beautiful national wildlife refuges. These areas are administered by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service specifically for the benefit of wildlife (most often migrating birds and waterfowl). Wildlife refuges have become necessary because of the on-going destruction of natural habitat necessary for the survival of many species. Some refuges are open to the the public, some not.
