The following Pacific island territories of the United States, except Midway Atoll, constitute the Pacific Remote Islands National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) Complex: Baker Island, Howland Island, Jarvis Island, Johnston Atoll, Kingman Reef, Midway Islands and Palmyra Atoll.
Midway Atoll NWR has been included in a Refuge Complex with the Hawaiian Islands NWR and also designated as part of Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument.
