Marine Mammal Center Site and Facilities Improvement Project

The National Park Service has completed a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the potential impacts of the The Marine Mammal Center Site and Facilities Improvements project. The project will upgrade and expand the Marine Mammal Center’s facilities. These improvements will better serve The Center’s existing programs for the treatment and rehabilitation of injured, ill, or orphaned marine mammals that strand in coastal waters every year.

The FONSI, along with the environmental assessment (EA) and Errata, completes the environmental impact analysis for the project. The Errata should be attached to the original EA to comprise a full and correct record of the impact analysis. Construction is currently underway.
