Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge

Description:

Situated midway across the world's largest ocean, 1,200 miles northwest of Honolulu, Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge is a place of astonishing beauty. From the air, one sees the surrounding cobalt sea breaking white over the barrier reef into an aquamarine lagoon holding the atoll's three low-lying islands. Due to our cooperator's decision to leave Midway Atoll, the visitor program closed in January 2002. Although our vision to maintain Midway as the only remote island National Wildlife Refuge open to public visitation has not changed, it may be some time before we can once again welcome visitors to the atoll on a regular basis. In the meantime, those able to provide their own transportation to Midway should contact the refuge manager for more information about visiting the atoll.

Directions:

Because of Midway Atoll's remote location in the middle of the North Pacific Ocean, it can only be reached by air, or by sailboats under a special use permit system.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
