If wildlife are thriving, then it follows that their homes must be in good shape. One way to track progress towards healthy wetlands is to look at wildlife that depend on wetlands. The first group is wetland breeding birds, or birds that must have wetland habitat for nesting and raising their young.
How do we know if we are making progress? Together with Blue Accounting partners, the Great Lakes Coastal Assembly is working to identify and track specific metrics that measure how well we are advancing toward reaching our objectives.
We have identified the following metrics so far. Click below to learn more.
