Puget Sound recovery

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife works to protect and restore nearshore environments such as beaches, bluffs, inlets, and river deltas. 

From shellfish to shorebirds, orcas to salmon, the nearshore waters of Washington carry biological, cultural, and economic significance for humans. With dedicated staff and a network of committed partners, WDFW helps oversee and fund numerous projects working to conserve the nearshore for generations to come.
