Convictions in Padre Island National Seashore Illegal Hunting Incidents.
In March 2015, five local duck hunters pleaded guilty in Federal court to illegal hunting within the boundaries of Padre Island National Seashore. The hunters were charged with illegally discharging a firearm within a National Park and for the illegal taking and possession of wildlife in two separate November 2014 incidents. Each of the individuals was fined a total of $300.

Padre Island National Seashore moves to electronically distribute environmental planning documents to the public.
Currently, the majority of Padre Island National Seashore project notifications are being delivered by post. Beginning May 1, 2015, we will be transferring to an electronic platform to distribute correspondence regarding park projects and associated compliance documents. E-mail will be the primary method used to expedite communications with those individuals interested in learning more about ongoing projects at Padre Island National Seashore.
