Puget Sound is a vast and beautiful region that is also extremely diverse. The unique attributes of the Puget Sound ecosystem have created highly variable conditions in climate, habitat types, and species from alpine forests to the depths of the marine waters. Puget Sound’s unique features also include diverse communities of people. This “profiles” section of the Action Agenda is focused on some of the differences across the Puget Sound region and descriptions of necessary actions that are tailored to local conditions and goals. The Island Local Integrating Organization (ILIO) covers the Island County/Watershed (WRIA 6).

The 2020 Action Agenda represents a new way of approaching the management of the Puget Sound. It takes an ecosystem approach from the crest of the Cascades and Olympics to the waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Hood Canal. Building on the Puget Sound region’s award-winning work to recover species and clean up polluted waters, the Action Agenda integrates scientific assessment with community priorities, and establishes a unified set of actions that are needed to protect and restore Puget Sound. The Action Agenda also serves as a statement of common purpose across the Sound and forms the basis for cooperation and collaboration among implementing partners.
