Sound Stewardship

The Sound Stewardship Vital Sign tells us 1) about the effectiveness of our management actions related to human behaviors that can affect the health of Puget Sound and 2) the degree to which engagement in stewardship contributes to people’s wellbeing. The myriad problems Puget Sound faces all have one common denominator: human practices and behaviors. Many common day-to-day household behaviors seem benign on their own, but when multiplied by 4.5 million residents their cumulative effect can significantly harm environmental health. Small behavioral changes, on the part of individuals, can negate those impacts. Likewise, when people participate collectively in actions to improve environmental health, their actions can be equally significant. Although people pose the greatest threats to the natural environment of Puget Sound, engagement of citizens in protection and restoration efforts offers the greatest opportunities for recovering Puget Sound.
