This Web site is the online presence of the Chesapeake Bay Program, "a unique regional partnership that has led and directed the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay." The site offers a wealth of information regarding the region's flora and fauna, habitats and ecosystem processes, restoration efforts, current events, and much more. For instance, click on Animals and Plants to access pages and pages of well-organized information about the area's shellfish, reptiles, mammals, insects, bay grasses, invasive species, and others too numerous to list. Each page contains a convenient glossary for important terms and links to related resources. Chesapeake Bay Program publications are also provided, although only some are available for immediate download. In all, this is an informative and easy-to-use Web site that even those not familiar with Chesapeake Bay should find interesting.
