Selawik National Wildlife Refuge was created in 1980 as part of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA). Many refuges and national parks in Alaska were created under this legislation. The Selawik River valley and Kobuk River delta were set aside as a National Wildlife Refuge due to the outstanding and important wildlife habitat of this area.
