The uneven distribution of California stream restoration


Today’s Video of the Day comes from the University of California, Santa Cruz and a features a look at how stream restoration projects are unevenly distributed along the central California coast.

According to a new study, stream restoration tends to be clustered in areas with particular ecological need, either with an abundance of fish or damaged habitats.

However, the study also found that restoration also tends to take place in areas where human communities are whiter, wealthier, and more educated.
