As of October 2016, the National Wildlife Refuge System is responsible for managing more than 850 million acres of lands and waters, including five national marine monuments, more than 560 national wildlife refuges and 38 wetland management districts. There is at least one national wildlife refuge in each state and U.S. Territory. About 500 national wildlife refuges are open to the public; nearly all of them offer free entry.  

The nation’s 38 wetland management districts manage thousands of small natural wetlands and grasslands located in the Prairie Pothole Region states of Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. These small wetlands and grasslands provide breeding, resting and nesting habitat for millions of waterfowl, shorebirds, grassland birds and other wildlife. 

For more information on the lands and waters managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, please download the Division of Realty's Annual Lands Report.
