The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service refuge operation on Midway Atoll experienced a significant 50% reduction in staff as of October 2012. Therefore, visitation and volunteer opportunities are extremely limited. Only a few visits will occur this year (under strict adherence to a Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (Monument) manager’s permit) to accomplish critical work projects directly serving the refuge's resource management, research, historical and cultural preservation responsibilities.
In the meantime, planning efforts are under way to implement next year or beyond, a visitor services operation at Midway as well as reinstate the volunteer program given adequate resources are made available. We hope you will consider supporting Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge capabilities by joining the refuge's non-profit cooperating association, Friends of Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge at http://friendsofmidway.org/.
