DORCHESTER COUNTY, Md.—Conservation efforts at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) are very different than those at other protected wildlife areas across the country. Since the 1930s, approximately 5,000 acres of tidal marsh have been lost due to sea level rise, subsidence, erosion and impacts from invasive species. In a landscape that continues to change, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) must strategically conserve land most suitable for the relocation of important habitats in order to maintain water quality and sustain the array of wildlife that pass through and call the refuge home.
