            National Wildlife Refuge Week is a yearly celebration of the country's 547 national wildlife refuges. During the week, festivals and special events are held across the nation with the hopes of connecting people with wildlife.

            Here in Kodiak, National Wildlife Refuge Week will be celebrated a little early in order to offer area residents a chance to meet and listen to a local wildlife legend.

            Tina Shaw is the manager of the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center. She spoke with KMXT's Diana Gish about upcoming Refuge Week activities:

 

           That was Tina Shaw of the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge talking about upcoming local activities in commemoration of National Wildlife Refuge Week.

            National wildlife refuges are dedicated to the conservation of fish and wildlife and their habitats. They also offer a wide range of wildlife-dependent recreation: from hunting and fishing to wildlife observation, wildlife photography, nature interpretation and environmental education. The refuge system includes 2,500 miles of land and water trails, and there is at least one national wildlife refuge in every state.

The system was established in 1903 when President Theodore Roosevelt designated the three-acre Pelican Island in Florida as the nation's first wildlife refuge. In addition to 547 wildlife refuges, the system includes more than 3,000 waterfowl production areas spanning nearly 100 million acres. The National Wildlife Refuge system is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
