Conserving America's Wetlands 2008: Four Years of Partnering Resulted in Accomplishing the President's Goal
The importance of wetlands stewardship is reflected in the array of public–private partnerships that have formed, enhanced through efforts at the federal level. Recognizing the need for more effective use and coordination of federal wetlands activities, on April 22, 2004, President George W. Bush announced a new national policy and goal on wetlands to achieve an overall increase of U.S. wetlands each year, by restoring or creating, improving, or protecting at least three million wetland acres between Earth Day 2004 and 2009. The Departments of the Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, Transportation, and the Army, and the Environmental Protection Agency have exceeded this target a year ahead of schedule in partnership with state, local, and tribal governments; private institutions; other nongovernmental entities; and individuals.
