  • Description:
    Under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA), the Natural Resource Trustee Agencies (Trustees) present a damage assessment/restoration plan/environmental assessment for natural resources injured during multiple oil spills that occurred off the coast of San Francisco, California, from 1990 to December 2003. The oil spills affected seabirds and marine mammals, including federally endangered Brown Pelicans and federally threatened Snowy Plovers, Marbled Murrelets, and Sea Otters. The Trustees have selected 14 restoration projects to restore the injured resources. The projects generally encompass the following: i) Reduce human disturbance to seabird and waterfowl nesting habitat along the central California coast, at northern California lakes, at Kokechik Flats, Alaska, and on islands off Baja California, Mexico: ii) Eradicate non-native predators from seabird nesting habitats at the Farallon Islands, California and the Queen Charlotte Islands, Canada, and protect nesting seabirds from non-native predators in New Zealand; iii) Acquire and/or restore and enhance seabird and shorebird nesting habitat at Reading Rock in Humboldt County, Point Reyes, Año Nuevo Island, and the Santa Cruz Mountains, California; iv) Manage and reduce corvid populations at Point Reyes to benefit nesting seabirds and in the Santa Cruz Mountains to benefit Marbled Murrelets; v) Conduct education and outreach programs to reduce human and livestock effluent and their associated pathogens that are impacting Sea Otters in Monterey Bay. The Trustees also present their environmental assessment on the selected projects under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
