Together we encourage the Department of California Fish and Wildlife to:
1. Protect, enhance and create diverse habitats for native plants and wildlife. Optimize diversity and enhance quality of wildlife habitats throughout Ballona, including wetland, riparian, dune, and upland environments. 2. Maximize and enhance wetland acreage and function. Also maximize diversity of created/restored wetland habitats, i.e. low, mid, and high marshes, salt pan, and brackish marsh.3. Increase watershed connectivity.4. Create nurseries for fish and nesting habitat for birds.5. Manage for rare and sensitive species.6. Create public access that is open, accessible, and welcoming to all people throughout Los Angeles using well-regulated trails for public access and educational opportunities that are compatible with restoration goals that protect habitat. 7. Ensure long-term resilience and sustainability with estimated future sea level rise.8. Reduce habitat fragmentation by providing wildlife travel corridors to minimize wildlife injury and mortality from vehicles.9. Safeguard as much wildlife as possible and minimize losses.10. Use appropriate measures of law enforcement to protect Ballona from trespassing, dumping, and other negative impacts.
