General Information

Description - The mission of these refuges and the Refuge System which now numbers over 500 is to administer a national network of lands and waters for the conservation, management and where appropriate, restoration of the fish, wildlife and plant resources and their habitats within the United States for the benefit of present and future generations of Americans.

Attractions - The acreage for the NWRS as of 9/30/07 was 96,420,884 acres. The system encompasses 548 national wildlife refuges, 37 Wetland Management Districts (which include Waterfowl Production Areas in 205 counties), and 49 Coordination Areas which are managed by the states.

Recreation - Wildlife viewing is the pirmary activity on any National Wildlife Refuge, however many of the refuges offer other activities such as hunting, fishing, educational activitis and all offer opportunities for photography.

Climate - The climate in Alaska varies with terrain and region. The south-central region of the state is most temperate because it is protected from cold northern winds by the Alaska Range. The large bodies of water that lies closely to this area create a stabilizing factor for the air temperature. Southeast Alaska is wet. An average of 80 inches of rain comes to this region directly from the Gulf of Alaska.

Location - the location including maps and driving directions directions to each refuge are available on the wildernet pages describing each refuge.
