Tijuana River Estuary is a small intertidal coastal estuary on the international border between California and Mexico. It lies within the southernmost part of San Diego County within the city limits of the South Bay city of Imperial Beach. The estuary is one of the few remaining salt marshes on the South Coast. Its location positions it under the path of the Pacific Flyway, where it serves as a stopover point for over 370 species of migratory and native birds, including six endangered species. The wetland has lost over 90% of its original habitat to development.
