Examples

Following is a listing of successful projects that have restored environmental functions and processes, have met their stated ecological goals, and are consistent with our nine principles. While the following examples focus on coastal wetlands, the nine principles apply to all types of wetland restoration projects.

URLs are listed, linking to Web sites or other documents published for each specific project, to provide additional information sources for each project as best as we’ve been able to obtain through online research by our core coalition partners.
