Explore California's Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and other river deltas around the world through a rich, multimedia experience from KQED and the East Bay Regional Park District. Videos, animations and interactive slideshows reveal the diverse ecosystem of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, its significance to surrounding communities and wildlife, and its dramatic evolution in recent history. A hugely important, but not-so-familiar region to many, the Delta supplies drinking water to more than 23 million Californians and irrigates millions of acres of farmland. Investigate the environmental challenges this and other deltas continue to face and how these vital natural resources can be preserved for future generations.
