10 Best Wildlife Refuges in America

Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge This Assateague Island refuge off Virginia's coast. Chincoteague is best known for its wild ponies, descended from horses presumed to have swum ashore from Spanish galleons that sank off the coast in the 15th and 16th centuries. The annual pony swim to and from Chincoteague Island happens at the end of July.
