National Wildlife Federation

Climate Change Challenge: Rising seas

Grant Award: $241,002; Year Awarded: 2014

The National Wildlife Federation will restore 1,350 linear feet of eroding shoreline using a suite of ‘living shoreline’ techniques that will maintain ecological processes, reduce erosion, and restore lost marsh and shoreline habitats impacted by current and projected sea-level rise and coastal flooding. With limited resources available to mitigate the impacts of climate change there is a growing emphasis on demonstrating cost-effective risk reduction strategies like these.
