aimed at maintaining a sustainable balance in the health and
productivity of the Gulf of Mexico, the most economically

The goal of the Gulf of Mexico Foundation is to ensure a sustainable quality of life for residents and visitors
of the Gulf coasts. To reach our goal, the Foundation promotes conservation and preservation of the Gulf of Mexico
through voluntary and cooperative stewardship by individuals, communities, and economic enterprises of the
United States and Mexico. The Foundation directs its efforts at all fronts –
environmental quality, resource management,
health, economic and cultural development, education, and awareness.
Humans both benefit from the Gulf's productivity and pose the greatest threat to its health and sustainability.
The Foundation's belief is that only through awareness, understanding, and stewardship can the Gulf of Mexico be conserved
and nurtured for the benefit of future generations.
The mission of the Gulf of Mexico Foundation is to promote and
facilitate conservation of the health and productivity of the
Gulf of Mexico and its resources through education, public
awareness, research, and leadership programs.
