Wildlife Refuge Plans to Address Cattle Damage to Islands

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is preparing a draft environmental impact statement regarding the unauthorized cattle on Chirikof and Wosnesenski Islands. The drafts are being written this winter and will hopefully be ready for public comment sometime this spring or summer. Once these draft documents are written, we will make them public and again ask for comments before making any final decisions. Meanwhile, this summer, a team of biologists, botanists, and range specialists visited Chirikof, Wosnesenski, and other islands in July.
