Organization Overview: 

Although they are among the most biologically and culturally important and highly threatened ecosystems on Earth, springs are poorly studied and inadequately protected. Most springs are relatively small size, yet they support at least 20% of the endangered animals in the United States, as well as untold thousands of rare or highly restricted species.

Organization Overview: 

The Sarasota Bay Estuary Program is dedicated to restoring our area’s greatest and most important natural asset – Sarasota Bay.

The program strives to improve water quality, increase habitat and enhance the natural resources of the area for the use and enjoyment by the public. The health of Sarasota Bay has seen significant gains since it was named an estuary of national significance by the U.S. Congress in 1989.

Adaptation work: 

Local Issues Many issues impact on the health and vitality of Sarasota Bay and all of its associated waterways. These include ongoing challenges related to urban development as well as the potential of unexpected events such as the BP Deep Horizon Oil Spill in 2010. Below are seven key issues that are currently being addressed by SBEP and its major partners.

Organization Overview: 

The ACE Basin NERR, designated in 1992, consists of about 140,000 acres and is one of 27 national reserves located along the US coastline. The National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) is a network of federal, state, and local partnerships that emphasize resource stewardship, monitoring of estuarine conditions, management-oriented research, technical information transfer, and environmental education.

Organization Overview: 

The North Inlet-Winyah Bay Reserve encompasses about 18,916 acres of tidal marshes and wetlands. North Inlet is an ocean-dominated estuary, featuring high water quality and extensive salt marshes surrounded by a small, forested watershed that is currently in a relatively undeveloped state. Freshwater input into North Inlet drains from the lands of Hobcaw Barony to the east, and Debordieu residential community to the north. Winyah Bay, in contrast, is a brackish water estuary dominated by input from four major rivers flowing into it.

Adaptation work: 

Research

A comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and coordinated approach to research in the NERR system addresses scientific and technical aspects of coastal management issues. Research and monitoring programs, including the development of baseline information, used in combination with education and outreach programs, help ensure the availability of scientific information that has long-term, system-wide consistency and utility for managers and members of the public to use in protecting or improving natural resources in their estuaries.

Abstract

The San Francisco Estuary Project’s (now the San Franciso Estuary Partnership) Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) is a collaboratively produced, consensus-based agreement about what should be done to protect and restore the Estuary. It serves as a roadmap for restoring the Estuary’s chemical, physical, and biological health. The CCMP was mandated under a reauthorization of the Clean Water Act in 1987, and Congress has directed that it be implemented. However, many of the actions suggested in the CCMP will require regulatory or policy initiatives to ensure implementation.
