Tips: Sea Stacks & Drones

Sea stacks are life supporting habitats for seabirds and marine mammals, that are protected under the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Sea stacks are closed for public use to protect marine wildlife at all times, year-round. They're also closed to ensure safety for human visitors.

Flying drones are disruptive to wildlife and visitors, and they are illegal. Drones can substantially impact wildlife mating, nesting and other behaviors. 

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act forbids harming or possessing any migratory birds and their eggs, nests, and feathers. Oregon Coast visitors can bring binoculars to observe sea stacks and any marine animal and seabird action up-close.
