Efforts to help the Salton Sea include expanded resources from the state, wetland restoration projects, and controlling toxic dust, as discussed in this episode with Frank Ruiz, Salton Sea Program Director for Audubon California. Frank also talks about the need to increase collaboration across stakeholders, give a voice to the poor communities around the Salton Sea, and educate young Latinos about environmental issues.
