The Citywide Biodiversity Vision, contained in San Francisco Board of Supervisors Resolution 107-18, was adopted unanimously by the Board of Supervisors on April 17, 2018. It elevates biodiversity as a citywide priority and establishes a framework for City departments to convey commitment and inspire action for protecting and enhancing biodiversity. Resolution 107-18 outlines the City’s Biodiversity Vision as follows:
“San Francisco is a place where our local biodiversity thrives in climate-resilient ecosystems that integrate healthy native wildlife and plant habitats throughout our city's physical environment, connecting ALL San Franciscans to nature daily and inspiring
stewardship of our unique natural heritage in every neighborhood.”
TIDA’s efforts prioritizing biodiversity include ongoing YBI Habitat Management Plan implementation, the YBI Stewardship Program, and the LEJ Native Plant Nursery operation. TIDA and SFE also foster regular biodiversity-focused collaboration with master
developer Treasure Island Community Development (TICD), TIDA’s master landscape contractor Rubicon Landscape Services, Life Learning Academy, Treasure Island Job Corps, and Island residents and stakeholders.
