Huleia National Wildlife Refuge

Search Kilauea Hawaii

Located on the southeast side of Kauai Island, Huleia NWR lies adjacent to the famous Menehune Fish Pond, a registered National Historic Landmark. The Huleia Refuge is approximately 241 acres, and was established in 1973 to provide open, productive wetlands for endangered Hawaiian waterbirds.

Thirty-one species of birds, including endangered Hawaiian stilt, coot, moorhen, and duck can be found here. Of the 31 species, 18 are introduced, and there are no native mammals, reptiles or amphibians here. It is believed however, that the Hawaiian hoary bat might live in this area.

In order to protect the endangered species that live in Huleia National Wildlife Refuge, it is closed to the public but can be viewed at an overlook maintained by the State of Hawaii at the Historic Menehune Fish Pond.
