Guam - The Guam National Wildlife Refuge will be closed for the next two weeks with the exception of next weekend due to the ongoing fence construction that is now being installed along the refuge entrance road. The multi-species barrier fence is being installed to keep out feral pigs, deer, cats, dogs and other animals from the wildlife refuge.
The six-foot tall fence encloses 125 acres of the refuge and will help ensure a predator-free habitat for Guam's native species. The refuge will be closed through March 2. Officials say the public can visit the refuge the weekend of February 25-26, but the refuge will close again until it re-opens on March 3.
