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 call for a dramatic increase in the pace and scale of protection, restoration, and enhancement actions in the coming years.
