Purpose The primary objective of the inventory was to document the presence and general distribution of terrestrial and marine SOCs and to record observations on the overall condition of their habitats. Terrestrial SOCs include certain migratory seabirds, shorebirds, and waterfowl. Important terrestrial habitats include Pisonia, Pemphis, and mixed broadleaf forests; salt ponds; and seabird and shorebird breeding and loafing sites. Marine SOCs include certain marine mammals, sea turtles, corals, sponges, and mollusks. Important marine habitats include lagoon, interislet, and seaward reef flats and slopes; reef passes; lagoon floors; seagrass beds; reef quarry pits; and intertidal zones.
