    The Nature Conservancy

    We are working with The Nature Conservancy, the world’s largest conservation organization, to reduce the risk from storm impacts and rising sea levels along one of our country’s most vulnerable shorelines. A $1 million grant from The Chubb Charitable Foundation includes a restoration and resilience project in Miami-Dade County to demonstrate the flood protection benefits of nature-based solutions. The project is designed to increase protection from flooding and serve as a model that can be replicated in other coastal cities in the U.S. and globally.

“The implementation of natural solutions to protect and restore our shoreline in Miami and throughout Florida is essential as we face the challenge of climate change and rising waters.”
