Kilauea Wildlife Refuge

Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge’s no-entry-fee weekend attracted about 1,500 visitors. Kaua’i residents took advantage of the opportunity to see Kilauea’s landmark lighthouse, the area’s main attraction, which is three years shy of its 100th birthday. They also were able to view many species of seabirds not easily visible elsewhere on the inhabited parts of the Islands, including baby wedge-tailed shearwater chicks resting in their nests, and birds like the red-footed booby, Laysan albatross, great frigatebird and more, swooping and soaring overhead.
