Puget Sound Restoration Fund

Puget Sound Restoration Fund (PSRF) works to restore abundant coastal resources and its connections to them through a diverse portfolio of in-the-water projects throughout Puget Sound. The focus of its restoration is living marine habitat and species, using structure forming species (Olympia oysters, bull kelp) and habitat enhancing species (pinto abalone). They form and maintain the living marine architecture that supports the marine ecosystem in Puget Sound and beyond. Restoration of these core elements has ripple effects, restoring function and giving direct and indirect support to fish and marine mammals throughout the food web. PSRF is dedicated to measurably improving conditions in the Puget Sound: improved water quality; increased abundance of native species; more acres of restored habitat; enhanced ecological benefits; additional community engagement. PSRF accomplishes this through specific, place-based projects. Long-term, it works to restore and maintain a healthy marine system that feeds and sustains us all.  To learn more visit: Puget Sound Restoration Fund.
