Bolsa Chica Ecological Conservancy preserves both native plants and wildlife, and helps protect people from flooding.

Renee Eng went to the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve in Huntington Beach and spoke with the conservancy's CEO, Patrick Brenden and Operations Manager, Eric Paquette. Paquette explained that wetlands act as a buffer during storms, thereby protecting inland communities and coastal area.
