Jackass Key National Wildlife Sanctuary
Pinellas National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1922 as breeding grounds for colonial bird species. The refuge consists of Indian key, Tarpon Key, Little Bird Key, Jackass Key, and Mule Key. All the mangrove islands of Pinellas NWR are within the St. Petersburg city limits, and provide loafing and feeding sites for brown pelicans, cormorants, anhingas, night herons, egrets, ibis, willet, and spoonbills. Accessible only by boat.
