Location and Contact Information
The coastal habitats conserved at Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge are some of the most beautiful and biologically rich places in the world.
What We Do
Refuges use a wide range of land management tools based on the best science available. The management tools used are aimed at ensuring a balanced conservation approach where both wildlife and people will benefit. At Humboldt Bay NWR, management activities focus on research and monitoring of refuge wildlife and on protection and maintenance of a natural, functioning ecosystem. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service coordinates with tribes, other agencies and entities, and the public to ensure the long-term health and viability of native plant and animal populations.
Whether you want to further conservation, learn more about nature or share your love of the outdoors, you’ve come to the right place. National wildlife refuges provide many opportunities for you to help your community and gain experience and personal satisfaction.
