2010 Proposed Cruise Ship Quotas
Contact: Allison Banks, Public Information Officer, 907-697-2230
In accordance with 36 CFR 13.1160(b), Superintendent Cherry Payne has proposed that the 2010 cruise ship day use quota for Glacier Bay remain unchanged from the 2009 season. Currently, the quota for the June, July, and August summer season is set at 153 use days and the quota for the May and September shoulder season is set at 92 use days.
Maintaining the seasonal use day quota at these levels will allow the results of ongoing research, monitoring, and baseline data collection to be assessed before any increases take place.
The NPS is soliciting public comment on the proposed day use quota. Comments will be accepted until close of business on June 22, 2009. You may submit comments using the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment website at:

Did You Know?
Common Murres (often seen on or near the Marble Islands) have a unique nesting behavior. They lay a single egg on bare ground or rock ledges. The egg is pear-shaped which prevents it from rolling off the ledge. Each egg has unique speckles and coloration that helps the parents identify their egg.
