This final Comprehensive Conservation Plan for the 7,291-acre Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge is the culmination of a planning effort involving Massachusetts state agencies, town of Chatham officials, local residents, conservation partners, and other stakeholders. This plan establishes 15-year management goals and objectives for wildlife and habitats, wilderness resources, public use, and administration and facilities.

This plan sets forward the management direction that we think best achieves the refuge's purposes, vision, and goals, and responds to public issues. Implementing the plan will facilitate the refuge’s important role in conserving and managing wildlife and habitats, and wilderness resources, in coastal New England.
