Make Your Voice Heard on RESTORE Plan
A healthy Gulf means healthy beaches, and family memories for generations to come. Make sure the Gulf Ecosystem Restoration Council takes full advantage of this historic opportunity to put the Gulf and the coastal communities which rely upon it on a path towards sustainability.
The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council’s Draft Initial Comprehensive Plan is a good starting point, but a lot more must be done to ensure that BP fines are primarily spent on the restoration of the coastal and marine environment. The Council’s efforts represent our best opportunity to jump-start coastal restoration and make the Gulf, our communities and our coastal-dependent economies more resilient in the face of rising seas and stronger storms. Unfortunately, some leaders seem more interested in squandering BP funds on environmentally destructive economic development schemes.
