Twitchell Island — A Carbon Sweet Spot

Controlled flooding in California recreates wetland biodiversity and becomes a “carbon sweet spot.”

"If a market could be created for wetland restoration," Crooks said, "it would have multiple benefits beyond carbon sequestration, including recreational opportunities for hunting, fishing, and birding created by the restored wildlife habitat, which, incidentally, would be an additional source of income for landowners."
