Abstract: The presence of an endangered species within a port complex presents numerous, often conflicting, management challenges - protection of an endangered species while accommodating economic development. This is a difficult task confronting the Port of Los Angeles which, in the midst of an expanding major industrial and commercial harbor, has to cope with the endangered California least tern. The presence of the least tern has resulted in significant economic, planning and scheduling impacts to the Port.
