Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge, Morris Island Professional Review and Guide

"Monomoy, situated on the very tip of the elbow of Cape Cod at the southernmost corner of Chatham, is a National Wildlife Refuge maintained by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Comprising North and South Monomoy Islands and Morris Island, the refuge totals more than 7,600 acres—twothirds of it water.

The region was formed by the last ice sheet as it retreated from what is now New England about 18,000 years ago; the islands are estimated to be about 6,000 years old. The area today is home to endangered terns, piping plovers, and an array of other shorebirds. It also supports a large rookery of gray seals."
