The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) manages four vast marine national monuments containing over 380,000 acres as part of the National Wildlife Refuge System. These refuges protect large stretches of the Pacific Ocean and provide habitat for millions of seabirds, deep-sea corals, sea turtles and endangered species like the Hawaiian monk seal.
