  Description:
    Abstract:
      Several organizations are working together to develop a
      regional restoration plan and information system for
      coastal habitats in Rhode Island. These organizations
      include the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management
      Council (CRMC), the Rhode Island Department of
      Environmental Management (DEM), Save The Bay (STB), and the
      National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
      Coastal Services Center. The project will identify
      socioeconomic and ecological concerns to develop
      restoration prioritization methodologies and
      decision-making tools for coastal managers and
      stakeholders. The products will utilize geographic
      information system (GIS) and Internet technologies to
      provide information on restoration activities and state
      restoration plans, as well as data access to educators,
      resource managers, scientists, and the public.
    Purpose:
      Rhode Island's coastal habitats include salt marshes,
      freshwater wetlands, seagrass beds, anadromous fish runs,
      beaches and dunes, cliffs and bluffs, coastal grasslands,
      rocky intertidal zones, coastal ponds, and estuarine
      embayments. These habitats support a wide variety of plants
      and animals; they provide natural areas for education and
      recreation; and they are valuable natural resources that
      enhance Rhode Island's economy through fishery landings and
      tourism. Degradation and loss of these areas from dredging,
      filling, and pollution often have led to decreased water
      quality, closure of fisheries, pollution of rivers and
      swimming areas, and sedimentation of wetlands. Currently, a
      movement to restore and preserve the state's coastal
      resources is underway; federal, state, nonprofit, and
      community groups are conducting restoration activities that
      include restoring tidal flow to restricted salt marshes,
      removing exotic plant species, planting seagrasses, and
      restoring anadromous fish runs.
