Black Rail Conservation Plan

black rail plan coverThe Black Rail Conservation Plan outlines the highest priority strategies needed to conserve the Eastern Black Rail throughout its former range on the Atlantic and Florida Gulf coasts. The plan sets population and habitat targets for the short and long term with a goal of creating sufficient habitat to support a sustainable population of Black Rails within the ACJV area. This plan strongly emphasizes both the short-term need to create more non-tidal habitat that is safe from the threats of sea level rise and tidal flooding as well as the longer term need to facilitate marsh migration to provide future Black Rail habitat in tidal marsh systems.
