A new restoration project transforms industrial salt ponds into thriving marshland habitats to provide a new home for rodents, birds and fish.

  • Spring Wildlife in the San Francisco Bay Area

    This video was shot a year ago. I'd planned to combine 2013 and 2014 into one spring movie, but the severe drought in California has wreaked havoc on our wildlife. All the mated-for-life raptor pairs my friends and I have followed for as many as 7 years years didn't return to their their normal nesting spots in 2014. Gone were the red-shouldered hawks and great horned owls. Also gone were most of the great blue herons, the pie-billed grebes, and so many more. The mammals in the San Francisco Bay Area haven't done much better. Hopefully, 2015 will be a better year.

    It's a hard statistic to swallow: San Francisco Bay, one of the nation’s most scenic bodies of water, has lost almost 90 percent of its wetlands over the last century. The loss of the tidal wetlands has had a devastating impact on some species of fish and wildlife, including the endangered salt marsh harvest mouse which we highlight in our piece. And with climate change and sea level rise looming in the future, scientists are concerned how the already-threatened wildlife in the Bay Area will fare. Leaders from the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project have an ambitious 50-year project to turn former barren industrial salt ponds back into thriving wetlands habitat. The hope is that the restored tidal marshes will mitigate some of the impacts of sea level rise. Executive Project Manag...

FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: apus024443 The death of 100 birds in the San Francisco Bay Area has baffled wildlife officials who say the feathers of the birds were coated with a mysterious substance that looks and feels like rubber cement. The birds began turning up on a beach Friday. Necropsies and lab tests will be done Tuesday but results may not be known until later this week, California Department of Fish and Wildlife spokesman Andrew Hughan said. "We've never seen anything quite like it," Hughan said. "So it's a mystery for the moment." Volunteers were slogging through mud and bog in the foggy, cold weather looking for dead surf scoters, buffleheads and horned grebes. The birds each weigh about four pounds and are roughly the size of a duck. Dead birds have turned up on shorelines, beaches and trails in the suburbs of San Leandro, Alameda and Hayward. "Volunteers are combing every inch of shoreline with their eyes and binoculars, running down the beach with a 20-foot pole with a net attached to it trying to save a bird," Hughan said. International Bird Rescue Interim Executive Director Barbara Callahan said she has never seen anything like the sticky gray goo in 20 years in the business. "The goo appears to be light gray in color and to me looks like rubber cement that's been played with all day and is sort of dirty," she said. "It has very little smell." Officials were investigating whether the substance could be polyisobutylene, which is sticky, odorless, largely colorless, and killed thousands of seabirds in the United Kingdom in 2013. "While on its face, this substance seems very similar to reports from the U.K. two years ago, we won't know definitively until lab tests are completed," Callahan said.

The death of 100 birds in the San Francisco Bay Area has baffled wildlife officials who say the feathers of the birds were coated with a mysterious substance that looks and feels like rubber cement. The birds began turning up on a beach Friday. Necropsies and lab tests will be done Tuesday but results may not be known until later this week, California Department of Fish and Wildlife spokesman Andrew Hughan said. "We've never seen anything quite like it," Hughan said. "So it's a mystery for the moment." Volunteers were slogging through mud and bog in the foggy, cold weather looking for dead surf scoters, buffleheads and horned grebes. The birds each weigh about four pounds and are roughly the size of a duck. Dead birds have turned up on shorelines, beaches and trails in the suburbs of San Leandro, Alameda and Hayward. "Volunteers are combing every inch of shoreline with their eyes and binoculars, running down the beach with a 20-foot pole with a net attached to it trying to save a bird," Hughan said. International Bird Rescue Interim Executive Director Barbara Callahan said she has never seen anything like the sticky gray goo in 20 years in the business. "The goo appears to be light gray in color and to me looks like rubber cement that's been played with all day and is sort of dirty," she said. "It has very little smell." Officials were investigating whether the substance could be polyisobutylene, which is sticky, odorless, largely colorless, and killed thousands of seabirds in the United Kingdom in 2013. "While on its face, this substance seems very similar to reports from the U.K. two years ago, we won't know definitively until lab tests are completed," Callahan said.
