CA LCC Project

Tidal Marsh Bird Population and Habitat Assessment

Project Information

Phase 1 (2010): This project assessed the potential effects of climate change on tidal marsh habitats and bird populations, identified priority sites for tidal marsh conservation and restoration, and developed a web-based mapping tool for managers to interactively display and query results.

Science Delivery Phase (2013): This phase will analyze different management options identified by managers against numerous climate change scenarios. Management actions that are robust or that fail under the climate change scenarios can be identified. A workshop will be held with managers to discuss the management options.

Project results can be found at Point Blue's San Francisco Bay Sea-Level Rise Website
