Papahānaumokuākea office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service/National 
Wildlife Refuge System is pleased to accept applications for the position 
of Deputy Refuge Project Leader (GS-12) at the Midway Atoll National 
Wildlife Refuge/Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.   The person 
in this position will serve as one of the key players in managing the 
largest protected area in the United States; will work closely with the 
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the State of Hawai'i, the 
Office of Hawaiian Affairs, and other key partners to develop and 
implement numerous programs; and will have the unique opportunity to live 
in the middle of one of the most dynamic ecosystems on the planet.

Midway Atoll is 1,000 miles northwest of Honolulu, Hawaii and is widely 
known for the battle that changed the course of World War II.  Now a 
National Wildlife Refuge, and an integral component of the 
Papahānaumokuākea, the refuge consists of a fringing reef with three coral 
islands totaling 1,549 acres of fast land and 580,392 acres of coral 
reefs, submerged marine habitat and blue water. The Atoll measures 
approximately 5 miles in diameter.  Midway provides nesting habitat for 
over 2.1 million seabirds of 15 species and habitat for a diverse and 
abundant assemblage of wildlife and plants including the endangered 
Hawaiian monk seal, Laysan duck and short-tailed albatross, threatened 
green turtles, spinner dolphins, migratory shorebirds, native plants and 
an undetermined number of fish and coral species.

I would be more than happy to talk with anyone about the position, or
