On-the-ground habitat projects are the lifeblood of our partnership and involve the protection, restoration and or enhancement of wetlands. These projects range in size from the smallest creeks to some of the largest tidal wetland restoration efforts in the country.

We provide forums for the sharing of ideas to foster creative approaches to conservation.

We secure, increase and find funding to help our partners realize their vision and goals.

We have the birds eye view on all active, completed and pending wetland conservation projects around the Bay.

The 2022 Implementation Strategy marks the first major update to SFBJV planning since 2001. In this revised strategy, we set ambitious new habitat goals for Estuary, Watershed, and Outer Coast habitats, update our waterfowl goals, and identify ten clear priorities and strategies to serve as the foundation of our partnership’s work. We call for a dramatic increase in the pace and scale of protection, restoration, and enhancement actions in the coming years.
