Michael and Xuan visited nine refuges total, starting in Houston, Texas (5) and moved northward to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (4). We met an amazing biologist, Lory, at Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge who spoke to us about the history of the refuge and what it's like to be a biologist at the refuge. She also gave us a personal tour of the nightlife in Beaumont, TX. At Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge, Dustin, the assistant manager took us out on a ride along after our inventory where we hope to spot a bobcat. At every refuge, we came across a range of wildlife that we hadn't ever come across before, such as armadillos, wild hogs, alligators, Texas Longhorns, White-tailed deer, etc, which was fantastic! If you think Texas is all hot and desert, you should visit and be pleasantly surprised!
