Series of interpretive panels located at 24 sites along the Oregon coastline. In February 1999, the 640-foot freighter New Carissa ran aground north of Coos Bay during a major winter storm, releasing an estimated 140,000 gallons of fuel into the marine environment. An estimated 2,465 seabirds were killed or injured by the spill, including the threatened western snowy plover and marbled murrelet. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and five other natural resource trustees reached a $28 million settlement with the ship's owner and the U.S. Coast Guard for restoring species harmed by the spill. As a part of the settlement, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service secured $440,000 in funding to create a public education project aimed at protecting seabirds and marine mammals along the entire coast of Oregon.
