Colorado River Delta Restoration Map

Below is a view of the Colorado River Delta below Yuma, AZ down the the Sea of Cortez. Our partners at The Sonoran Institute have slowly been restoring significant sections of the river habitat back to the native plants. While the scope of the restoration is small today, the goal has been to demonstrate the feasibility of restoration and then seek larger funds to support an expanded restoration effort. Coupled with the new treaty between the US and Mexico, the potential for pulse and annual flows into the river will enable wider restoration efforts to happen.
