This is a review of Great Lakes coastal wetland protection measures for both the United States and Canada, including regulatory mechanisms, tax incentives, securement stewardship initiatives and special programs/partnerships. International, federal, provincial, state, and local government and nongovernment programs are reviewed with commentary on effectiveness of such programs. Programs vary in scope and comprehensiveness at all levels. Major recent initiatives focus on water quality improvement from federal/state government and waterfowl habitat restoration from government/nongovernment partnerships.
