Description

The Eastern Habitat Joint Venture (EHJV) has investigated the possible socio-economic and biological implications of undertaking a wetland restoration project of approximately 1,000 acres in the vicinity of the Canadian portion of the Lake St. Clair shoreline. The primary goal of the restoration project is to increase the availability of waterfowl staging habitat within approximately 8 km of the Canadian shoreline of Lake St. Clair. The results of the analyses clearly suggest that the proposed wetland restoration project would provide substantial environmental and social benefits. They also suggest that the economic downside of the project is negligible and that there is a reasonable basis for expecting modest economic benefits.
