Friends of Alaska National Wildlife Refuges is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to promoting the conservation of the natural resources of all the National Wildlife Refuges within Alaska. From it's beginnings in 2005, Friends has grown to a vibrant organization with over 200 members throughout the state and nation.
Friends have been active on our refuge fighting invasive species, hosting special events, photographing the refuge, teaching Native children at summer camps and working in our Visitor Center. In 2015, the Friends became our major partner in hosting the Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival.
