Restoring the Gulf for Coastal Waterbirds: A Long-term Vision
As we enter the RESTORE Act era, National Audubon Society realizes a historic calling to help recovery of Gulf Coast ecosystems for birds. To meet this calling, Audubon has set forth a plan for comprehensive coastal protection and restoration: "Restoring the Gulf for Coastal Waterbirds: A Long-term Vision." The nation's first national wildlife refuges were in the region, focused on protecting vulnerable bird populations. Audubon wardens were on the front lines of battles to wrest respect for nature during lawless times. The challenges are different now but no less urgent. They call for the same bold action, far-reaching vision and committed investment. Any effort to restore the gulf, the function of its ecology, and its magnificent wildlife must include a comprehensive, coordinated approach to restoring at-risk waterbirds and the critical habitats on which they depend.
