KILAUEA » The Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge is cancelling all events scheduled in celebration of National Wildlife Refuge Week because of the federal government shutdown.

The refuge said Friday it won't be offering a guided hike with seabird biologist and a talk at Kilauea Point.

Officials are unable to hold the events because the shutdown halted all preparation and planning by staff and volunteers.

All wildlife refuges within the Kauai National Wildlife Refuge Complex will remain closed until funding is restored.

The Kauai complex includes wildlife refuges at Kilauea Point, Hanalei and Huleia.
