Location and Contact Information
In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson issued an Executive Order setting aside Anaho Island as a preserve and breeding ground for colony nesting birds. The refuge is part of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Reservation and provides safe nesting habitat for one of the largest colonies of American white pelicans in the western United States.
What We Do
The National Wildlife Refuge System is a series of lands and waters owned and managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Wildlife conservation is at the heart of the refuge system. It drives everything we do from the purpose a refuge is established, to the recreational activities offered there, to the resource management tools we use. Selecting the right tools helps us ensure the survival of local plants and animals and helps fulfill the purpose of the refuge.
