These critical habitats support spawning horseshoe crabs and foraging migratory shorebirds.
The CRC in partnership with the American Littoral Society and USFWS developed projects
to restore storm damaged beaches. Living shoreline projects designed to enhance
and stabilize the restored beach habitats are underway. Additional goals are to enhance
ecological and community resilience, restore degraded marsh, and understand the long
and short term movement of sediment along the Delaware Bay shoreline.
