Our goal in preparing this report is to provide historical reviews of several coastal species for natural resource managers who are charged with protecting coastal habitats and the wildlife that contribute to Oregon’s ecological and economic health. In doing this report, we had to consider some of the factors responsible for decline during Oregon’s historic period. This project has made us painfully aware of the tremendous responsibility that we place on these coastal managers. Furthermore, it seems vital to us for the public to participate fully in the work of protection and restoration.
