Coastal Restoration at Work
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has received $167 million in Recovery funds to support coastal restoration in the US. NOAA’s Restoration Atlas, an interactive web-based map, provides information about Recovery projects such as project descriptions, project photos, and funding information. Some of these projects include the restoration of wetlands and coral reefs, the removal of fish passage barriers on coastal rivers and streams, and the restoration of fisheries. To learn more about Recovery funded marine and coastal habitat restoration projects visit the NOAA website or check out the Restoration Atlas.
