HELP US DEVELOP VITAL SIGN IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGIES FOR THE BENTHIC INDEX OF BIOTIC INTEGRITY AND TOXICS IN FISH
The Stormwater Strategic Initiative Lead Team is seeking members for two Interdisciplinary Teams to help develop Implementation Strategies, or recovery and protection strategies, which accelerate progress toward meeting both the Benthic Index of Biotic Integrity (B-IBI) and Toxics in Fish 2020 Vital Sign targets across the Puget Sound. Participants will work alongside the Stormwater Strategic Initiative Leads, Puget Sound Partnership, Puget Sound Institute, and others in this effort.
Implementation Strategies will help the region align planning and resources toward achieving shared recovery and protection targets. They will be used to inform future iterations of the Action Agenda by identifying critical priorities for recovery or protection. Two IDT groups (B-IBI and Toxics in Fish) composed of 12-15 experts with diverse perspectives will shape the development and prioritization of protection and restoration pathways for each Vital Sign target.
Statement of Interest
To be considered for the Interdisciplinary Team, please complete a simple online statement of interest by Monday, December 12, 2016. The form will allow you to briefly describe your interest and share your qualifications.
