Resilient Florida Program - Living Shorelines

Living Shorelines 

Shorelines are dynamic environments that undergo natural erosion and accretion by the fluctuation of wave energy and tidal exchange. However, these processes can be exacerbated by human activities, causing harm to shorelines by making them less resilient to changes such as sea level rise and erosion.  

Living shorelines can reduce wave damage to the coast and inland structures by creating a solution that incorporates both green and gray infrastructure along the shoreline.
