The U.S. military is committed to being a good steward of the environment

In its role as a responsible steward of the environment, it is the military’s goal to protect the unique and sensitive resources present in areas where it trains and conducts tests, while still providing the realistic experiences necessary for the readiness and safety of personnel.

To continue to achieve both of these goals, the military invests in scientific research and collects data, applies the most current science and latest technologies to improve its environmental analyses, and implements successful environmental and cultural stewardship programs.

The military is committed to protecting the natural and cultural heritage of the Mariana Islands. Programs have been established to care for and protect threatened and endangered plants and wildlife, and cultural and historic buildings and sites on military ranges.
