“The Puget Sound Partnership is a community effort of citizens, governments, tribes, scientists and businesses working together to restore and protect Puget Sound.
Despite its size, Puget Sound is ecologically delicate; and while its symptoms of trouble are not easily visible, they are undeniable and getting worse.
The charge given to the Puget Sound Partnership by Governor Gregoire and the
Legislature is to create a real Action Agenda that turns things around and leads to a healthy Puget Sound.
Our Action Agenda will prioritize cleanup and improvement projects, coordinate federal, state, local, tribal and private resources, and make sure that we are all working cooperatively. We will base decisions on science, focus on actions that have the biggest impact, and hold people and organizations accountable for results.
Our goal is to make Puget Sound healthy again, and create a roadmap for how to get it done. If we work together, we can have both a thriving Puget Sound economy and a clean and healthy Puget Sound ecosystem,” quoting the Puget Sound Partnership.
Yelm-based SuperConsciousness Magazine ran a wonderful story on this effort last May. (free subscription required).
