March Restoration Brings Back Black Duck

Posted Monday July 24, 2017 by wf_admin

In only a short time since its restoration, the Galilee Salt Marsh has seen the return of a number of species, including the black duck and the clapper rail – a positive sign of a habitat’s revitalization. Thanks in part to support from Wildlife Forever, a multi-year and multi-million dollar project has been a major success, receiving many national awards and kudos. By restoring 128 acres of salt marshes and other habitats favored by the black duck and other waterfowl and shorebirds, the project has become a model for similar efforts nationwide.
