Fostering awareness

Education is one of our main focuses at the Gulf of Mexico Foundation. By fostering diverse education and leadership programs, we aim to increase awareness, understanding and stewardship about the Gulf of Mexico. Our hands-on expeditions and workshops provide quality professional development for teachers while our student activities encourage youth to become stewards of the environment in which they live.
