Examples of Our Work

Mid-Atlantic Regional Ocean Assessment

Make Way for Marshes

Guidance on Using Models of Tidal Marsh Migration to Support Community Resilience to Sea Level Rise

For the Northeast Regional Ocean Council (NROC), we produced a 60-page document that informs management and policy efforts to sustain tidal marshes in the face of sea level rise. The reader-friendly, visually engaging book provides insights and recommendations for the entire lifecycle from planning a modeling effort to communicating the findings.

In a previous project, we also designed NROC’s logo and built their website.

Guide to the Science of Marine Protected Areas in The Bahamas

We wrote this 16-page document for the American Museum of Natural History based on interdisciplinary research funded by the National Science Foundation.

We synthesized findings from ecological, oceanographic, and socioeconomic studies showing how marine protected areas (MPAs) can work to conserve shallow coral reef ecosystems in The Bahamas, including seagrass meadows, mangroves, and other lagoon habitats.

Floodplains by Design

For The Nature Conservancy of Washington State, we created a website for the Floodplains by Design partnership, which carries out projects that improve flood protection for towns and farms, restore salmon habitats, improve water quality, and enhance outdoor recreation.

We designed the site, wrote content, and set up an easy-to-use content management system (CMS) that Floodplains by Design staff use to update the site.

Rainbow Smelt: An Imperiled Fish in a Changing World

Rainbow smelt are an important part of New England’s ecosystem and culture, but the species is declining precipitously. With funding from NOAA, the states of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine are developing a regional conservation and restoration plan.

Working with a multi-state research team, we produced a website and a companion four-page brochure that tell the story of the rainbow smelt, its decline, and what people can do to help this important fish to recover.
