Results and AccomplishmentsShared Strategy is rolling local recovery plans into one plan for federal review this year. Their strategy:
• Identifies key elements of a recovery plan and assesses how current efforts support it.
• Sets recovery targets and ranges for Chinook populations in each watershed,
• Identifies watershed-level actions needed to meet targets,
• Determines if identified actions will lead to recovery; if not, makes adjustments,
• Secures commitments to complete the plan and implement agreed-upon actions.
Other activities and features of Shared Strategy include:
• Fourteen watershed groups and one nearshore marine group have developed local recovery plans.
• A non-profit organization staffs and facilitates the regional-scale process, providing tailored assistance to watersheds.
• A regional policy group, the SSPS Development Committee, represents all levels of government, tribes, businesses, and conservation groups. The Puget Sound Technical Recovery Team, an independent group of scientists, provides ESA delisting criteria and technical guidance for the recovery plan.
