Welcome to Merritt Island National Wildlife Association - Visitors are always welcome!
The Merritt Island Wildlife Association (MIWA) is a Florida 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation that has been helping to support the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge since 1994. Our mission is to promote conservation, awareness, appreciation, and use of the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge (MINWR) and to support Refuge programs.
Through the ongoing efforts of MIWA, our volunteers and members, we have been able to provide much needed annual funding for programs that include environmental education, community outreach, internships and volunteers. We help fund refuge projects and events, such as construction of the Sendler Education Outpost Pavilion, Black Point Wildlife Drive observation deck and restroom facilities. We are currently fundraising for the new exhibits that will be the centerpiece of the new MINWR Community Conservation and Education Center.
We invite you to participate in our ongoing mission and hope that you will join the many who are dedicate to the preservation and appreciation of the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge.
Thank you for you support and we will see you on the Refuge!
