16 Photos Of Wildlife In New Jersey That Will Drop Your Jaw

New Jersey may be the most densely populated state in the U.S. but that doesn’t mean we don’t also have parks; we have plenty. Though every county in New Jersey is considered a metropolitan area, we offer numerous state and national parks, local parks and wildlife refuges. From Allaire to Allamuchy and Wharton to Waywayanda our small state has forests, mountains, lakes and loads of wildlife.

Let’s all hoist our jaws back up and appreciate the natural beauty New Jersey has to offer. To spot similar scenes yourself consider visiting one of our incredible state parks or wildlife preserves. Great places to start include the Stone Harbor Bird Sanctuary, Island Beach State Park and the Lakota Wolf Preserve. What is your favorite spot for wildlife watching?
