The Coastal Wetland and Tributary Decision Support Tool for the Duck-Pensaukee is an interactive, online map designed to help conservationists prioritize sites in the Duck-Pensaukee Watershed for land protection and restoration projects. The Duck-Pensaukee Watershed is a sub-watershed of Green Bay and faces serious conservation challenges. These challenges include the loss of coastal wetlands, which clean polluted water, intercept waste, protect our shorelines from erosion, provide food and shelter for migratory birds, and serve as nurseries for fish and other aquatic life.
The Ohio Coastal Atlas (OCA) Map Viewer displays geospatial information about Lake Erie and its watershed to support coastal decision-makers, land management professionals, engineers, educators, interest groups, and the general public. Many of the data layers are also highlighted in the Ohio Coastal Atlas Second Edition.
The Wetlands Mapper displays current information on the status, extent, characteristics and functions of wetlands, riparian, and deepwater habitats in the United States. This information is intended to promote the understanding and conservation of wetland resources through discovery and education as well as to aid in resource management, research and decision making.
This Great Lakes Coastal Wetlands Monitoring Program involves monitoring of Great Lakes coastal wetland biota, habitat, and water quality to provide information on coastal wetland condition using fish, birds, calling amphibians, wetland vegetation, aquatic macroinvertebrates, and water quality. Limited data from this monitoring is available to anonymous users, while the remaining of the data is available to registered users. Data from this monitoring program is used to inform the IBIs in the Coastal Wetlands Progress Tracker.
The GLRI is the largest federal investment in Great Lakes restoration and conservation in two decades. Begun in 2010, the Initiative awarded over $292 million in its first five years for habitat and wildlife restoration and protection across the eight Great Lakes states. Hundreds of organizations are implementing projects to advance the restoration goals of the GLRI and to rehabilitate and conserve fish and wildlife resources that are important ecological and economic assets for local communities.
