恢复我们的湿地

拯救海湾的工作是大规模地恢复海湾的栖息地, both through advancing sound science 和 by securing the funding necessary for these projects.

为什么湿地很重要?

的 Bay Area receives numerous ecological 和 economic benefits from the wetl和s. 健康的潮汐沼泽是海湾的肾脏, 过滤有害污染物,改善水质. This vital habitat gives life to hundreds of fish 和 wildlife species 和 plays an integral role forming the base of marine 和 terrestrial food webs. 当潮沼兴旺时,人类也兴旺起来.

干净的水

Wetl和 plants filter the pollution to actually clean the Bay by trapping polluted runoff before toxins can reach open water.

经济效益

California’s wetl和s provide tremendous benefits to the state from tourism, fishing, 和 recreation.

帮助遏制全球变暖

Tidal marshes are one of the natural systems that capture 和 store carbon from the atmosphere.

敏感物种的生境

健康的潮汐沼泽是觅食和繁殖地, 为数百个物种提供食物, 包括许多受到威胁和濒危的物种.

休憩用地及康乐

Wetl和s are beautiful areas of open space around the highly urbanized Bay Area, 和 many trails 和 parks near wetl和s provide residents with places to hike, birdwatch, 自行车, kayak, 和更多的.

许多居民在海平面或海平面以下生活和工作. 湿地可以提供洪水保护,因为它们就像海绵一样, slowing down 和 soaking up large quantities of water from storms 和 high tides.

In 2016, 拯救海湾和其他合作伙伴成功地确保AA措施获得通过, which will provide $500 million to fund critical restoration projects over the next 20 years.

我们是如何来到这里的

不管这些土地有多重要, 在过去的200年里, 由于人类活动,我们失去了海湾90%的湿地. 在湾, 湿地是这里, 排干, 或将其转变为农业地区, 盐的生产, 和城市发展. 拯救海湾的报告, 绿化海湾, 列出了需要100个,000 acres of 海涂 habitat around the Bay 和 identified local funding as the key to creating a healthy Bay for future generations.  2016年,拯救海湾和其他合作伙伴成功地确保了通过 测量AA, which will provide $500 million to fund critical restoration projects over the next 20 years. 这笔基金将为修复工作拨出资源, 增强, 保护, 和 enjoyment of wetl和s 和 wildlife habitat in San Francisco Bay 和 along its shoreline.

为什么要恢复湿地过渡带?

的 过渡区, or ecotone, is the integrated area where two different habitats meet. 沿着海湾海岸线, 生境的连续体包括潮下, 海涂, 过渡区, 和高地. 这个历史上广泛, gently sloping habitat between the marsh 和高地 is an integral component of a complete wetl和 system 和 in many areas, 它只剩下几英尺宽了. This habitat is where 保存湾’s Habitat Restoration team focuses their efforts.

Transition zones provide resources 和 refuge from high tides for a number of important species including the Ridgway的铁路盐沼捕鼠它们都是联邦濒危物种,也是湾区的特有物种. 这些区域也充当活动走廊, 这是连接两个相邻栖息地的重要功能. Restoring wetl和 过渡区s reconnects habitat fragmented due to human activity, 和 in turn better supports the complex 和 interconnected ecology of the Bayl和s.

托儿所设施

保存湾 operates four nursery facilities to support our habitat restoration work. 我们繁殖和外植大约35个,000–40,每年种植000株, between our facilities in the Palo Alto Bayl和s 和 马丁·路德·金. 海岸线. Our operations at the Oro Loma Sanitary District 和 贝尔马林键 provide the extra capacity to significantly scale up our propagation numbers 和 grow plants for large wetl和 restoration projects.
