Copper River Protection

This grant supports Ecotrust's efforts to protect the Copper River's eastern delta and its key salmon populations. In addition to providing valuable salmon habitat, the Copper River's 700,000-acre delta is also a critical staging ground for more than 16 million shorebirds and waterfowl during their annual northward migration. Outcomes for this grant include development of a GIS-based management strategy for habitat protection and watershed, completion of two delta acquisitions, identification of key information gaps, and collaboration with stakeholders to pilot hatchery reforms.
