Wetland Loss Causes Organizations to Spring into Action

Southern California’s coastal environments are under intense development pressure. In the Tijuana River Valley, wetland loss is particularly prevalent.

To document wetland importance and wetland recovery needs, the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve worked with the Sacramento State University Center for Collaborative Policy. The team also developed a set of tools and resources useful for investigating, visualizing, and communicating potential wetland scenarios. This information is informing local and regional wetland recovery and management efforts. (2016)
