The Wetland Conservation Finance – Texas Style Workshop was hosted by the Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve (the Reserve), the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies (HRI), and Seagrass Consulting LLC. As part of the theme of bringing wetlands to market, the workshop explored novel methods of finance, return on investment, and strategies and partnerships.
The workshop was a kickoff where the organizers act as catalysts to move initiatives forward, connect partners, build tools, and assemble information, with an overarching goal to restore and conserve coastal wetlands. Based on survey results from the workshop, it is clear that participants want further investigation and communication on wetland conservation finance. The sponsoring organizations are committed to making that happen. Download the Workshop Summary and Next Steps here: June 2017 PSS Announcement.
