Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1932. It is particularly important in loggerhead turtle nesting, red wolf breeding program and management of artificial ponds.
Ponds on Bulls Island host most of the wintering waterfowl. If your destination is Bulls Island, take drinking water and food, and wear comfortable walking shoes. Always remember to bring your cameras and binoculars. Any visit to the refuge during warm spring, summer, and fall months requires insect repellent. .
The refuge is open sunrise to sunset, seven days a week, yearround. The only facilities accessible by automobile are the refuge office, Sewee Visitor Center, and Moores Landing. Bulls Island lies nearly three miles off the mainland and is reached by boat from Moores Landing. A private ferry service takes visitors to Bulls Island on regularly scheduled days.
