The Pacific Region encompasses extraordinary ecological diversity with habitats ranging from tropical forests and coral reefs at Palmyra Atoll National Wildlife Refuge, to old-growth rainforests west of the Cascade mountain range of Oregon and Washington, to remote coastal and Pacific islands teaming with millions of seabirds, to glacial lakes and streams in Washington's Northern Cascades, to arid shrub-steppe habitat in southern Idaho.
These habitats support over 400 threatened and endangered species, many unique and endemic plant and animal communities, and a variety of land-use considerations.
The Region includes the States of Hawai’i, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington and Pacific island Territories and U.S. affiliated States. This includes the Territories of American Samoa, Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands; and the Freely Associated States of the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau under the Compacts of Free Association.
These states and territories encompass over 158 million acres spread over a large area. The Pacific islands area of the Region is located throughout 4.9 million square miles of ocean, spanning 5 time zones and the International Date Line.
