Principles of estuarine habitat restoration: working together to restore America's estuaries: report on the RAE-ERF partnership, year one, September 1999

RAE is a coalition of 11 regional community-based organizations that works to preserve estuaries across America by focusing attention on estuarine habitat loss and restoration. ... As the centerpiece for this initial year of collaboration, a set of working principles was developed to guide restoration activities. These principles emphasize the importance of a long-term stewardship approach to restoration and incorporating ecological sensitivity into all restoration planning and practice. .. This report highlights the results of Year One of the RAE-ERF collaboration.
