Together, we reconnect the San Elijo Lagoon with the Pacific Ocean.
New, oxygen-rich water from the ocean means that our wildlife – and ecosystem – can survive. Thanks to a long-term financial endowment, we can facilitate tidal circulation. Plus, our Reviving Your Wetlands – San Elijo Lagoon Restoration project is also improving this critical process. Naturally, the lagoon used to reconnect to the ocean regularly. Due to modern infrastructure’s effects on the lagoon, we need to recreate that opening/closing cycle for the ecosystem’s health.
In San Diego, natural ecosystems like these need protection – and action. Let’s maintain our lagoon with a healthy ocean connection!
