Species Conservation Habitat II

The Species Conservation Habitat Project Phase 2 is a pilot project to provide a range of aquatic habitats that will support fish and wildlife species dependent on the Salton Sea. When completed, this project will provide feeding, resting, and breeding habitat for birds, particularly migratory fish-eating birds whose habitat is deteriorating quickly as the Sea recedes and becomes saltier. Innovative features of this project include loafing islands, deeper water retreat habitat for fish, predation exclusion structures, and integrated sedimentation basins.
