Representatives from Restore America's Estuaries will give an overview of a newly released study linking ecologically important coastal habitat restoration with adaptation and mitigation strategies as a way to reduce the impacts of ongoing global climate change. The report, "Restore-Adapt-Mitigate: Responding to Climate Change through Coastal Habitat Restoration," demonstrates that large-scale coastal wetland restoration - from restoring salt marshes to protecting mangroves and creating new coastal wetland habitats - can be an integral part of public and private initiatives to combat climate change. The report is a multi-author collaboration bringing together internationally recognized experts in environmental science, policy, and habitat management. For more information, click here.
