The second wildlife refuge in Delaware is Prime Hook, which is considered to have one of the best existing wetland habitat areas along the Atlantic Coast. Approximately 267 species of birds, 35 species of reptiles and amphibians and 36 different mammals either live in the refuge or migrate through including endangered and threatened species like the Delmarva fox squirrel, nesting bald eagles and migrating peregrine falcons. The refuge contains about 10,000 acres of diverse landscape featuring freshwater and salt marshes, woodlands, grasslands, scrub-brush habitats, ponds, bottomland forested areas, a 7-mile long creek, and agricultural lands.
