This is a virtual event announcing our top on-the-ground conservation projects from our Partnerships in 2021. The Waters to Watch campaign, implemented in support of the National Fish Habitat Action Plan, aims to demonstrate that science-based aquatic habitat conservation actions make a difference to benefit aquatic habitats, local communities, anglers, and economies. The Waters to Watch campaign raises the visibility of some of the best on-the-ground aquatic habitat conservation projects implemented by individual Fish Habitat Partnerships (FHPs). The Waters to Watch campaign aims to raise the visibility and support for the National Fish Habitat Partnership (NFHP).
The campaign highlights 10 projects on an annual basis to:
i) Focus attention on local efforts carried out by FHPs to implement the National Fish Habitat Partnership;
ii) Garner local and national support for, and raise awareness of, the benefits to aquatic habitat, local communities, anglers, and economies from actions implemented through the National Fish Habitat Partnership; and
iii) Strengthen existing and develop new partnerships with collaborators who share NFHP’s mission and goals to protect, restore, and enhance fish and aquatic communities.
Since 2007, the Waters to Watch campaign has featured over 120 model aquatic conservation projects. These projects have received media recognition across the country, raising public awareness of the activities of the FHPs. The Waters to Watch campaign provides an excellent opportunity for FHPs to publicize the progress, accomplishments, and success within the geographic area of your FHP. It also affords opportunities at the national level to strengthen existing partners and garner national and local support for your FHP and NFHP.
This announcement will be made on https://www.fishhabitat.org/ on 9/25/21.
