For the past quarter century , the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service managed year-round field camps offering six month volunteer positions at Laysan and Tern Islands. Currently, the Refuge does not have the staff or infrastructure capacity to operate a safe island-based field operation.  However we are planning to offer volunteer opportunities in the near future to help plan and build capacity for the remote island field camps to become operable.  

To continue offering you support consider joining the Refuge's cooperating association at Friends of Hawaiian Islands National Wildlife Refuge

In the meantime, check back often for volunteer opportunity updates.
