The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service would also like to remind the public that all of the rocks, reefs and island along the Oregon coast are included within the National Wildlife Refuge System and they are closed to public access to protect seabirds and pinnipeds (seals & sea lions). The public should never go ashore or climb on these and we request the boats voluntarily remain 500' away from the rocks and aircraft maintain a 2000' clearance over them or a 1/2 mile lateral distance. More information on the National Wildlife Refuges on the Oregon coast can be found at http://www.fws.gov/oregoncoast/ or by contacting this office.
