Stretching the coastline between San Clemente and Oceanside, Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is a major US Marine Corps Base that was established in 1942. The Operating Force units stationed here include the I Marine Expeditionary Force. With its extensive coastline, salt marsh habitat, coastal dunes, and wetlands, ecology research takes place in the base’s undeveloped areas. Endangered California habitats and rare animals live in these areas, which is also a breeding habitat for several species of birds.
