Habitat Conservation & Restoration Team

To ensure the sustainability and productivity of the Gulf for generations to come, the Gulf of Mexico Foundation, in partnership with the Gulf States, NOAA, and EPA, has taken the lead in coordinating the activities of the Habitat Conservation and Restoration Team (previously the Regional Restoration Coordination Team) as recommended by the Gulf of Mexico Alliance’s Governor’s Action Plan. Mikell Smith serves as the GMF’s Project Coordinator for the HCRT.
