The refuge is home to one of the last concentrations of the threatened Louisiana black bear. In 1907, Teddy Roosevelt hunted bear just north of the refuge boundary and the "Teddy Bear" was introduced as a result of an incident during the hunt. Concentrations of ducks, geese, raptors, wading birds and shorebirds are present. Several rookeries are in the reserve.
