Recreational Value

Healthy estuaries are aesthetically pleasing and are good places to enjoy recreational activities. Healthy estuaries have diverse flora and fauna that draw many people to the coast. They are also great places to enjoy a seemingly endless list of recreational activities including fishing, hunting, kayaking, boating, sailing, wakeboarding, skiing, bird watching, kiteboarding, crabbing, and much more. These values are reasons why many people are interested in estuarine conservation.
