Protecting Wilderness Coast and Sanctuary Waters
Steve Fradkin, PhD, Coastal Ecologist, Olympic National Park
On December 18, 2012, Coast Guard searchers found a 185-ton dock that washed out to sea during the March 2011 tsunami in Japan. Located in an extremely rugged and remote section of Olympic National Park's wilderness coast and the Olympic National Marine Sanctuary, the dock posed a threat to visitor safety and had the potential to damage resources. Steve Fradkin, Olympic National Park Coastal Ecologist and a member of the multi-agency response team, will share his stories of the successful removal effort.
