The Otay Delta Habitat Restoration Project site is part of a larger riparian ecosystem and wildlife habitat corridor that extends from the San Diego Bay east into the Otay Mountains.  The restoration of 65 acres of riparian habitat in the Otay Delta will improve the quality and continuity of habitat for a variety of neo-topical migratory and resident birds, including several threaten and endangered species, as well as other native wildlife.  The Otay Delta Restoration Project builds upon ongoing efforts by the City of San Diego, County of San Diego, City of Chula Vista, and The US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to create a habitat corridor within the Otay Valley Regional Park.  Additionally, the project will implement the City of San Diego Multiple Species of Conservation Program (MSCP) Sub-area Plan, which specifies that a 1,000-foot-wide wildlife corridor be provided on this site to preserve connections between the Otay River and San Diego Bay (City of San Diego 1997).
