This report advances practices designed to help coastal communities become safer and more sustainable in ways that work with, rather than against, nature. It describes ecological solutions to coastal community hazards, including measures to protect open space, and enhance and protect coastal ecosystems (including beaches and dunes, coastal forests and shrublands, and tidal marshes) in ways that increase elevation and reduce erosion and flooding risks. By highlighting ecological solutions to New Jersey's coastal hazards, communities can better prepare for and adapt to ongoing and future changes, strengthening long-term coastal resilience for both people and wildlife. The guide was produced by the National Wildlife Federation in partnership with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Coastal and Land Use Planning with financial support from the U.S. Department of the Interior and administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Competitive Grant Program.
