Project Title & Description
Gulf of Mexico Program
From the date of the project award to March 2009, the project team will coordinate the Wetland and Coastal Habitat Conservation and Restoration committee established by the Governors� Action Plan of the Gulf of Mexico Alliance. A series of workshops will be held in the Gulf States. The resulting output will include descriptions of the habitat issues of the Gulf States, recommendations of “priority” conservation and restoration needs, and suggested solutions to permitting and funding challenges that may exist. The project team will work with potential collaborators to leverage funding, develop and distribute educational outreach efforts and materials, and build a strong habitat conservation stewardship ethic within the Gulf States and the Gulf of Mexico watershed states.
