Project Description

In 2010, the Puget Sound Partnership engaged regional experts and the public in identifying the key ecosystem indicators and pressures that would help us identify whether we were making progress in restoring the Sound. In 2011, the Leadership Council adopted targets – specific measures that we could use as 'Vital Signs' of Puget Sound's health. The indicators and targets have been incorporated into a Dashboard that is intended to help us track our efforts. The Dashboard will serve as a report card on our success in meeting our targets. Each section of the Dashboard provides information on these indicators. It also provides an ongoing list of the efforts our Partners are making and suggestions on what individual citizens can do to join this effort. All of this information will be continuously updated. We have also provided a link to 'My Puget Sound' that will enable visitors to this site to engage friends and associates, provide additional strategies for restoring the Sound, or give us feedback on how our Dashboard can be improved.
