Near-Term Action Agenda for Salmon Habitat Conservation
The WRIA 8 Near-Term Action Agenda for Salmon Conservation (NTAA) was published in August 2002, after more than a year of collaborative discussions among elected officials, jurisdictional and agency staff, business and environmental groups, scientists, and concerned citizens.
From 2002-2005 the NTAA recommended near term actions to local governments and interested organizations and citizens on interim measures to improve salmon habitat while the long-term comprehensive Chinook Salmon Conservation Plan was being developed. Included in the NTAA are:
- Opportunities for habitat restoration and protection
- Research recommendations
- Regulatory guidance
- Education and involvement activities
- Guidance on adaptive management and monitoring
- Information on implementation resources.
