Mission Statement

Parker River National Wildlife Refuge is committed to conserve, protect, and enhance habitat for migratory birds and other species of wildlife and plants for the continuing benefit of the American people.

Description

Parker River National Wildlife Refuge encompasses over 4,500 acres of pristine coastal habitat in Northeaster Massachusetts. Occupying the southern two-thirds of Plum Island, a barrier island, the Refuge provides critical beach, dune, maritime forest and salt marsh habitat for wildlife. The Refuge is home to the federally threatened piping plover, and extensive efforts are made to protect this bird in its habitat at the refuge. With over 200,000 visitors a year, the Refuge also affords several educational and recreational opportunities for the public.
