CURRENT EVENTS
 Marine Corps Base Hawaii environmental department worked with the Pacific Rim Conservation and U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service to relocate the Red-footed Booby seabirds to areas that would be better for them to live. Decoys and speakers were
placed in trees away from the firing area so that U.S. Marines will be able to train, produce readiness, and minimize impact to
this federally protected bird. For more information go to https://www.dvidshub.net/image/4244815/bullets-and-boobiesenvironmental-
