The National Wildlife Refuge System is committed to building partnerships which encourage conservation and preservation of our natural and cultural resources. Partnerships with the Refuge System bring innovative approaches to solving land management and water disputes in the most environmentally protective manner. Scientifically-informed and technologically-based stewardship of our public lands, waters, wildlife and special places must be collaborative efforts between the Refuge System, other government agencies, and private organizations if conservation efforts are to succeed.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA are working to develop a vision statement and goals for the Monument. These will be followed by developing management strategies common throughout the Monument. Fisheries-related management will be planned through the National Marine Fisheries Service process.
