Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study features conservation efforts in the Musquash Estuary, which is part of the Musquash Nature Reserve. The land surrounding the estuary is a haven for many native plants and wildlife, while the estuary itself plays a critical role in dampening the effects of climate change by reducing the impacts of sea-level rise and coastal erosion, and by sequestering carbon. This project showcases how natural infrastructure, particularly coastal wetlands, can increase a coastline's stability to future changes in sea-level rise and coastal erosion, and other climate impacts.
