Injured Animals and Habitat
Unfortunately, birds, fish, wildlife, and their habitats often suffer from the effects of human activity. See some graphic examples of these injuries, which can be caused by sources as varied as abandoned fishing gear, spilled oil, and past industrial facilities. OR&R works to measure these damages and protect and restore NOAA trust natural resources.
