Restoration of San Francisco Bay wetlands is now crucial to local climate resilience

Climate change has caused rising tides to pose a threat for California’s San Francisco Bay Area.

As a result, a new report shows that in order to reduce flooding, 54,000 acres of the Bay Area’s wetlands will need restoration within the next 15 years.

Local politicians and environmental scientists are working together to create a platform advocating a tax measure that will fund the restoration effort.

According to biologist Letitia Grenier, if nothing is done, “bigger waves will come in with high tides and storms, and cause more flooding.” Grenier says, the wetlands will be gone, and our wildlife will be threatened.
