MCI-WEST MCB Camp Pendleton (Camp Pendleton, Base) is a premier amphibious training Base which is home to 18 federally listed species. Integral to the success of military mission aboard Camp Pendleton is maintaining and protecting natural resources. The Base has successfully implemented the installation’s Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan by close coordination and collaboration with Base operators, federal and California state agencies, and the regional scientific community. Camp Pendleton’s Wildlife Management Section oversees management of 12 federally protected species of mammal, bird, amphibian and fish on Base, as well as many other sensitive species of various taxa. These species are distributed widely over approximately 125,000 acres of largely undeveloped training land in Southern California, including 17 miles of shoreline, three major watersheds and coastal foothills with elevations up to 3,000 feet above sea level.
The Joint Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan (INRMP) for Marine Corps Installations West - Marine Corps Base (MCIWEST-MCB) Camp Pendleton and Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Camp Pendleton has been revised and is now final. This INRMP guides the effective management of natural resources at both installations to ensure that lands remain available and in good condition to support the military mission with “no net loss” for this capability.
MCIWEST-MCB Camp Pendleton and MCAS Camp Pendleton developed this INRMP Revision in coordination with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Marine Fisheries Services, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the California Department of Parks and Recreation, Orange County District.
