14 Habitat banking  Pool mitigation from multiple projects  Regional – bigger picture  Advanced – before impacts 14

15 Similar to other approaches Mitigation and conservation banking – For jurisdictional wetlands, T&E Regional conservation plans (HCP/NCCP) – Regional analysis and mitigation – Mostly private development driven 15

16 Several key challenges Selecting strategic locations Coordinating with other efforts Funding habitat before impacts Funding perpetual management 16

17 Coordination with others Bay Delta Conservation Plan 5 NCCP/HCPs Ecosystem Restoration Program 4-Pumps Agreement OCAP – State Water Project env’l permitting others 17
