Vital signs 2016.png
The Puget Sound Vital Signs program is an effort by the Puget Sound partnership to communicate progress toward Puget Sound recovery.
In 2010, the Puget Sound Partnership engaged our regional experts and the public in identifying the key ecosystem indicators and pressures that would help us identify whether we were making progress in restoring the Sound. In 2011, the Leadership Council adopted targets – specific measures that we could use as 'Vital Signs' of Puget Sound's health. The indicators and targets have been incorporated into a Dashboard that is intended to help us track our efforts. The Dashboard will serve as a report card on our success in meeting our targets.
