About the Central Coast Wetlands Group
Who We Are
The Central Coast Wetlands Group (CCWG) is an affiliate research group at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories focused on the study, preservation and restoration of Central Coast Wetlands. Our group was started in response to federal and state interests in coordinating wetland activities throughout California. The state and federal governments have adopted the "No Net Loss" policy for wetlands, but currently have few mechanisms to track the implementation or success meant to achieve this policy. The Central Coast Wetlands Group has begun to build the necessary infrastructure, working closely with regional partners (USEPA, MBNMS, CSUMB, CCRWQB and RCDMC) who have active programs spread throughout the Central Coast.
