As large-scale restoration plans for degraded aquatic habitats evolve, it is essential that multiorganizational collaborations have a common vision to achieve consensus on restoration goals. Development of restoration targets and postrestoration monitoring strategies can be focused using a viability analysis framework that supports an adaptive management process. Resource managers in the corridor can use these results to identify knowledge gaps, research and restoration priorities, and to assess progress towards meeting restoration goals.
Sharing information resources on coastal wetlands helps foster collaborative and more strategic conservation efforts.
There are many existing partnerships, plans, reports, training materials, decision tools and other valuable information resources that can help inform strategic decision making to protect and restore Great Lakes coastal wetlands.
