||This report summarizes the results of the first Environmental Standards and Procedures (UES) inventory of endangered species and wildlife resources at United States Army Kwajalein Atoll (USAKA), which was conducted in 1996. The primary objective of the inventory was to document the presence and general distribution of terrestrial and marine species of concern (SOCs) and to record observations on the overall condition of their habitats. Terrestrial SOCs included certain migratory seabirds, shorebirds, and waterfowl. Important terrestrial habitats included Pisonia, Pemphis, and mixed broadleaf forests; salt ponds; and seabird and shorebird breeding and loafing sites. Marine SOCs included certain marine mammals, sea turtles, corals, sponges, and mollusks. Important marine habitats included lagoon, interislet, and seaward reef flats and slopes; reef passes; lagoon floors; seagrass beds; reef quarry pits; and intertidal zones.
