Ridgway’s Rails and Adaptive Tidal Marsh Restoration

Ridgeway's Rails

Ridgway’s Rail is a species that Golden Gate Audubon Society has worked hard to protect over the decades, fighting to preserve and and then helping restore its habitat in locations like Oakland’s Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline. We are presenting this speaker event as part of our year-long Centennial celebration.

The Ridgway’s Rail, a federally-listed endangered species dependent on San Francisco Bay tidal marshes, is making a comeback after a sharp decline a decade ago. The population is increasing due in part to large-scale tidal restoration projects happening throughout the Bay. Will these populations be resilient in the future as rising seas and storms threaten their populations? How can innovative restoration and habitat enhancement efforts designed to benefit all marsh species help them survive? Point Blue Conservation Science seeks to answer these questions using a science-based assessment framework with the help of multiple partner organizations and agencies.

Speaker: Julian Wood, San Francisco Bay Program Leader at Point Blue Conservation Science
