The 2024 Jarvis Island DXpedition wishes to thank the staff of the USFWS in Hawaii for their hard work in approving this minimally invasive operation on Jarvis Island NWR.  Jarvis is part of the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument! The Monument encompasses approximately 495,189 square miles of open ocean, coral reef, and island habitats, making the total area of the Monument nearly five times the size of all the U.S. National Parks combined and nearly twice the size of the state of Texas. Within the boundaries of the Monument rest seven national wildlife refuges: Howland, Baker, and Jarvis Islands, Johnston, Wake and Palmyra Atoll, and Kingman Reef.

Since 1871 the USFWS is the only federal government agency whose primary responsibility is to manage fish and wildlife resources in the public trust for people today and future generations.
