The Monomoy Wilderness is a 3,244-acre (13 km2) wilderness area south of Cape Cod in the U.S. state of Massachusetts. It is located within the Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge and is administered by the US Fish & Wildlife Service. Severe winter storms isolated Monomoy Point from the mainland in 1958 and, 20 years later, separated North Monomoy Island from South Monomoy Island. Sand dunes on the eastern shore of the islands give way to salt marsh and then to mudflats on the western shore. The ecosystem is a perfect habitat for migratory birds.

dbo:abstract
  • La Selva Monomoy es un área silvestre de 3244 hectáreas (13 km²) al sur de los Estados Unidos, en el estado de Massachusetts.​ Se encuentra dentro del Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre de Monomoy. Las fuertes tormentas de invierno aislaron al punto Monomoy de la parte continental en 1958 y, 20 años después, se separó de la Isla Norte de Monomoy. Las dunas de arena en la costa oriental de la isla dan paso a la marisma y luego a las marismas en la costa occidental. El ecosistema es un hábitat ideal para las aves migratorias. Apodado un santuario para la vida silvestre en 1944, la mayoría del Refugio Nacional de Monomoy ha sido designado como una selva. Esto incluye todo el norte de la isla y todos menos dos tramos de la isla en la parte sur. La parte continental del Refugio no es propiamente una selva. (es)

The mainland portion of the Refuge is not wilderness. (en)
