Provision of habitat for native wildlife: Wetlands provide essential breeding. The wetlands delineation shall be used by the city in the environmental review of the proposed project in compliance with CEQA. C. The review authority shall require “no net loss” for wetland areas regulated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the California .

The CWHP works on both public and private wetlands in partnership with numerous conservation organizations.
These easements provide permanent landscape protection while allowing landowners to retain and enjoy their lands.

The report is the most comprehensive evaluation ever conducted on the overall health of any class of wetlands in California. It provides an estimate of how much estuarine wetland exists in California and the health of those wetlands. Benefits of the Report. The Cosumnes River Preserve is one of the few protected wetland habitat areas in the state.
In the Central Valley, the preserve is a critical stop. The Regional Strategy will guide wetland restoration for the WRP over the next few decades using scientifically-based, quantitative objectives that will improve wetland resilience to climate change and other stressors. DFG's official position regarding the protection of wetlands is that development projects should not result in a net loss of either wetland acreage or wetland habitat value (DFG, ).
The California State Coastal Conservancy (SCC) is another State agency actively involved in the protection and enhancement of coastal wetlands, although the agency has no regulatory function. oxbow lake.
