Restoration Category: Habitat Protection

Injured Resources Addressed: Marbled Murrelets

Abstract: Between 9,500 and 14,000 marbled murrelets died from the direct effects of oiling after the EVOS. Presently, there is no known evidence of population recovery within the spill area. This study, a continuation and expansion of previous studies, will attempt to characterize the nesting habitat of marbled murrelets throughout the EVOS area so that habitat protection or acquisition options can be most effectively evaluated.

Marbeled murrelet sites will be examined and site characteristics will be recorded. Data will be entered into a Geographic Information System to evaluate the relationship between marbled murrelet activity and the pattern and composition of habitat patches. Models could then be applied toward identifying potential habitat areas for protection.
