Visiting Kingman Reef National Wildlife Refuge

Kingman NWR is managed as a no-take marine protected area and is closed to the public. The Service does permit research and biological surveys on the refuge to further the understanding of the natural resources and to improve the management of these natural resources on the refuge or within the National Wildlife Refuge System. Refuge access is managed through the issuance of a Special Use Permit when the activity is deemed compatible and appropriate with the purposes of refuge establishment.
