Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, HI

Fish and Wildlife Service

Overview

Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge's rocky cliffs provide premier nesting and roosting habitat for seven native Hawaiian seabirds. It is one of the most important seabird nesting sites in the inhabited Hawaiian Islands. Reintroduction of the endangered nene (Hawaiian goose) began on the refuge in 1991 as part of a statewide recovery program. Predator control and a predator proof fence line around the perimeter of the refuge are necessary to protect breeding seabirds and nene. Native plant restoration has been ongoing since the refuge was established in 1985. Habitat management also includes opening and maintaining nesting areas for the recently colonizing Laysan albatross and improving feeding habitat for nene.
