Australia-Oceania :: Howland Island
(territory of the US)
Howland Island is a US possession located in the north Pacific between Australia and the Hawaiian Islands. Prior to 1890, organic nitrate (guano) was mined from the island by both the US and the British. This tiny island (2.6 sq km) is currently part of the US National Wildlife Refuge system, and provides nesting areas and forage for a variety of birds and marine wildlife.
