The Coast Guard Cutter Juniper (WLB 201) is the first of the Coast Guard’s 225-foot sea-going buoy tenders. Juniper’s missions include servicing aids to navigation, law enforcement, search and rescue, domestic icebreaking and marine environmental pollution response. Juniper operates under the First Coast Guard District in Boston. Her primary area of responsibility is from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, to Sandy Hook, New Jersey. Juniper participated in the search and rescue efforts after the TWA Flight 800 and Egypt Air 990 catastrophes as well as in anti-terrorist and force protection operations in New York after the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. Juniper can also skim and recover spilled oil, as demonstrated by her recent 145-day deployment in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, where she recovered 145,000 gallons of oil.
