Many different types of activities are needed to accelerate progress toward Puget Sound recovery. Near Term Actions (NTAs) are associated with one or more activity types under one of three activity categories:
- Behavior Change - Activities intended to get people to reduce or modify behaviors that pose direct threats to the ecosystem, or to continue and increase positive behaviors.
- Ecological Restoration and Management Actions - Activities to directly restore the ecosystem or mitigate a stress. Activities that work directly to improve or maintain the condition of habitats, species or ecological processes.
- Enabling Conditions - Activities that create the conditions necessary for restoration, conservation or protection efforts to take place or succeed.
