Camp Pendleton's natural resource management philosophy is that management programs should achieve the objectives of regulatory requirements and foster stewardship of the resources entrusted to Marine Corps while not constraining the ability to accomplish established and future military training requirements. Camp Pendleton's intent is to preclude long term damage and degradation to training lands by managing natural resources effectively through time.
Ultimately, the success of Camp Pendleton's natural resources management is reflected in the long term sustainability of species populations and ecosystem functions, the maintenance of regulatory compliance, and in the continued ability of Camp Pendleton to support the military mission.
"Southern California is one of the most biologically diverse regions in the continental United States. It supports a variety of habitat types and contains the greatest number of plant and wildlife species identified by the federal government as threatened or endangered. Natural resources on Camp Pendleton reflect the rich diversity of species and habitat types formerly present within the region. The great diversity and abundance of plant and wildlife resources on Camp Pendleton provide many ecological, aesthetic, recreational, and military values to the Base, its residents, and the general public".
