Ecosystem recovery depends on understanding the diverse people and social systems in the region.​ ​The “Social Science for the Salish Sea Incubator” is outlining a research agenda for environmental social science that serves the ecosystem recovery needs of the transboundary waters shared by Washington State and British Columbia. Co-authored by researchers and practitioners, the paper will include a literature review, annotated list of research questions, roadmap for implementing this research plan, and summary of best practice​s​ for studying the human dimensions of ecosystem recovery. Project leads are Sara Breslow of EarthLab and Leah Kintner of the Puget Sound Partnership.
