Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve was established in 2006 and covers nearly 186,000 acres, making it the third largest reserve in the nation. Located 30 miles northeast of Corpus Christi, the reserve includes state bay waters and wetlands with most of the dry land residing in the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge and the Matagorda National Wildlife Refuge. Despite a long history of human uses and its close proximity to the city of Corpus Christi, the reserve is relatively rural and pristine.  The unique and diverse estuarine habitats in the western Gulf of Mexico support many threatened and endangered species including the endangered whooping crane.    Map Us | Visit Our Website
