National wildlife refuge (160 acres), Kīlauea, Kauaʻi. The refuge was established in 1974 when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service took over a 31-acre Coast Guard Reservation at Kīlauea Point. The Coast Guard used the site to maintain Kīlauea Light. The refuge includes the sea cliffs at Mōkōlea Point, Crater Hill, and Kīlauea Point and is home to at least seven species of seabirds, including wedge-tailed shearwaters, red-footed boobies, brown boobies, Laysan albatrosses, red-tailed and white-tailed tropic birds, and great frigate birds. The refuge is one of the few places in the world where the public can see nesting colonies of Central Pacific seabirds. The visitor center is on the point.
