The Nature Conservancy in collaborating with citizens, public agencies, academic institutions and other nonprofit groups is working to restore the health of Green Bay for people and nature. One of the many challenges facing the bay is 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. Another challenge is the bridges, dams and culverts that can disrupt the connection between those wetlands, tributary streams and the open waters of the bay. With funding from the Environmental Protection Agency via the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, the Joyce Foundation and other private support, the Conservancy developed an online tool to identify and prioritize habitat protection and restoration in the Green Bay watershed. The tool considers the important roles played by wetlands and waterways in providing services for people and habitat for wildlife, and in maintaining the health of the watershed and the bay.
