Today, Midway is Wildlife Refuge and a Battle of Midway National Memorial. The Battle of Midway National Memorial is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. They have made several promises to host visitors to the island – but the island remains closed to public visitation, with no plan to reopen, despite a Legal Mandate to keep it open for visitors.
