The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has closed the Breton National Wildlife Refuge to public entry.

This includes the Chandeleur Islands chain (Chandeleur, Grand Gossier, Curlew, New Harbor Island, North Islands, Free Mason).

The refuge is being close to keep the public safe, not to disturb the nesting of colonial seabirds, and make sure cleanup and recovery efforts go smooth.

No word yet on when the refuge may be reopened.
