California Coastal Commission raises concerns over marine impacts of Point Reyes NS management plan

While Point Reyes National Seashore staff has approved a plan to allow the ranching industry to remain in business at the seashore for two more decades, staff at the California Coastal Commission is concerned that the plan fails to adequately protect marine resources.

National Park Service staff in September issued their final environmental impact statement on how to manage the seashore's native Tule elk herds alongside cattle herds. While the plan called for maintaining the seashore's free-ranging Tule elk, it also allows for the killing of elk near livestock operations.
