Fifty percent of our nation's salt marshes are located along the US, Gulf Coast. These intertidal, coastal ecosystems support healthy fisheries, protect shorelines and play an important economic role for local communities. Native coastal plants provide essential habitat for marine and other wild life. Importantly, restoration helps control coastal erosion by attenuating wave and wind energy, while trapping beneficial sediment.
