A Note From Our President
Restoring our nation’s estuaries, habitats that provide valuable resources for both wildlife and people, is a crucial mission not only to our organization and our members, but to all Americans.
For the past 12 years, I have led Restore America’s Estuaries through many periods, from varying political climates and natural disasters, to the emergence of new science and techniques. In this time, I have seen our small, but nimble organization emerge as a national leader in the field of estuarine restoration and serve as a key convener of diverse stakeholders. In 2019, we leveraged these abilities to equip our partners with the know-how and ingenuity to succeed in their efforts.
The restoration community has recognized that our nation’s coasts are on the frontlines of defense against the impacts of climate change. Yet when we look to the future our vision is clear: Our nation’s estuaries and bays are healthy, thriving, and resilient, and we face the oncoming challenges as one collective voice.
Daniel Hayden, President and CEO
