NOAA, in partnership with EPA, recently released four regional Coastal Wetland Reviews. According to NOAA, the reports include information regarding recent coastal wetland trends that can help state and local wetlands managers identify key information gaps and determine what is needed to address the ongoing loss of coastal wetlands.
The reviews come following a series of meetings with stakeholders in coastal watersheds throughout the Mid-Atlantic, South Atlantic, North Atlantic, and Gulf of Mexico.
According to NOAA, the objective of the reviews was to better understand regional stressors on wetlands in coastal watersheds and local protection strategies with the goal of reversing the trend of wetland loss.
