San Francisco, California

The primary focus of the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is to support tidal marsh restoration through research, monitoring and education.

San Francisco Bay has lost nearly 97 percent of its historic tidal wetlands due to development pressures within and around the bay. Tidal wetlands are critical for flood prevention; sediment management; and habitat for small mammals, migratory birds and fish species, many of which are threatened and endangered.
