The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is committed to the safety and health of our neighbors, friends, and employees across Alaska, and we are deeply concerned about the threat posed by the transmission of the infectious disease, COVID-19.

We are following safety guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the State of Alaska. We continue to respect local Tribal, borough, and city orders in our communities.

The Selawik National Wildlife Refuge headquarters office in Kotzebue is open, with masks required indoors. Our Selawik office is temporarily closed due to staffing. We continue to serve the public by phone and email: please call 907-442-3799 to reach our staff, or see our "contact us" page for a list of email addresses.
