Despite these successful efforts for the Pacific Flyway, there remain various proposals as part of California’s ongoing Bay-Delta debate to redirect water away from the Sacramento Valley, which could undermine these partnerships and the successful efforts to provide both habitat and food for these ducks and many other species along the Pacific Flyway.
