Our Refuges

Hawaii is home to several national wildlife refuges, including the James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge, Pearl Harbor National Wildlife Refuge, and Oahu Forest National Wildlife Refuge. The James Campbell refuge spans over 1,100 acres of wetlands and is a critical habitat for endangered Hawaiian waterbirds such as the Hawaiian duck and Hawaiian coot. The Pearl Harbor refuge, located on the island of Oahu, is a vital nesting ground for seabirds like the wedge-tailed shearwater and Laysan albatross. Finally, the Oahu Forest refuge protects over 4,000 acres of lush rainforest and is home to rare bird species like the Oahu Elepaio and Amakihi. These refuges provide important habitats for Hawaii's unique flora and fauna, learn more below.
