The Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge in Melbourne Beach is a twenty mile section of coastline from Melbourne Beach to Wabasso Beach. Biologist consider it the most important nesting area for loggerhead sea turtles in the western hemisphere and the second most important nesting beach in the world.
Established in 1991 and named after the late Dr. Archie Carr, Jr., in honor of his extraordinary contribution to sea turtle conservation, the refuge was designated to protect the habitat for both loggerhead sea turtles and green turtle nesting in North America.
