The Southern California Wetlands Recovery Project (WRP) is a novel and broad-based partnership of 18 state and federal agencies working in concert with scientists, local governments, environmental organizations, business leaders, and educators. The geographic scope of the WRP includes coastal wetlands and watersheds from Point Conception south to the U.S.Mexico border. The WRP employs three primary strategies to recover wetlands: (1) acquisition of property from willing sellers, (2) restoration and enhancement of wetlands, and (3) outreach and education about best practices to protect wetlands. The Coastal Conservancy manages the WRP and assists local partners in developing and implementing projects. The Coastal Conservancy provides programmatic funding for a local technical assistance program, science advisory panel, and the public outreach program.
