Refuge Plans

This page offers access to plans for managing each of the 16 national wildlife refuges in Alaska. Each of the refuges is managed under direction provided in a comprehensive conservation plan. These plans are dynamic documents that provide broad policy guidance and long-term goals and objectives for managing the refuges. Each plan is updated every 15 years to reflect changing public interests and new scientific information.

Each refuge also has a land-protection plan, which focuses on private lands within the refuge boundaries with the goal of identifying and conserving high-quality habitat on those lands.

To have your name added to our planning mailing list, print out, complete, fold, and mail this form (pdf).
