Wassaw Island is the only island of the Golden Isles with an undisturbed forest cover. Located primarily within the Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge, it is one of the few remaining sea island ecosystems where natural processes of succession, erosion and deposition, relatively unaffected by human activities, are demonstrated. The vast salt marsh that lies between the sea island and the mainland is rich in biological productivity, sustaining a wide array of unusual animals.
