Article abstract: The primary goal of this three-year project was to support the restoration and recovery of coastal cactus wren (CACW) populations in the San Pasqual Valley/Lake Hodges region including locations identified under coordination with the South San Diego County Coastal Cactus Wren Conservation Implementation Plan. In pursuit of this goal, the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research aspired to accomplish two tasks: 1) establish and maintain a cactus nursery to supply cacti for habitat restoration to land managers in North County and 2) control invasive species and restore habitat in potential cactus wren nesting habitat.
