General Information

Description - The northern half of the refuge is the 2.3-million-acre Togiak Wilderness. Terrain on the refuge is dominated by large expanses of tundra uplands cut by broad glacial valleys opening to a coastal plain.

Refuge rivers support all five species of Pacific salmon and large populations of other fish, including trout, char, grayling, and whitefish. Common land mammals include brown bear, moose, caribou, wolves and various other furbearers. Sea lions, walrus, and harbor seals inhabit coastal environments of the refuge. Coastal lakes and wetlands are heavily used by migrating waterfowl.

Recreation - Despite its relative remoteness and limited accessibility, the refuge's many rivers and world-class rainbow trout, char, and grayling fishing attract many anglers from throughout the United States and Europe. Residents of several mostly Native villages within and adjacent to the refuge depend upon refuge wildlife, fish, and plant resources for subsistence.

Location - Located in southwestern Alaska between Kuskokwim Bay and Bristol Bay, Togiak Refuge is about 400 miles southwest of Anchorage. The refuge is bordered on the north by the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge and on the east by Wood-Tikchik State Park.
