James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge is one of a few scattered remnants of wetlands that still exist on O‘ahu, the Refuge was established in 1976 for the purpose of providing habitat for endangered native waterbirds.

The Refuge is vital breeding habitat for four endangered waterbirds as well as various native and migratory birds. Though the Ki‘i Unit of the James Campbell NWR is usually open to the public during the non-breeding season, and closed during the remainder of the year to provide undisturbed habitat during the ae‘o nesting season, at this time there are no Refuge Tours being offered during the non-breeding season. Please check the website periodically for updates. Visit our Visitor Activities page for more information.
