Take Action to Restore the Gulf
The world’s first-ever plan to restore the ocean is here—and you can help ensure its success.
From tiny plankton to majestic sperm whales, there are more than 15,000 species that call the Gulf of Mexico home. Many of these species and their habitats were impacted by the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil disaster. Dozens of migratory wildlife species traveled through the oiled area while en route to distant feeding and mating grounds, inadvertently expanding the oil and dispersant footprint far beyond the initial disaster zone. The health of the Gulf is further affected by decades of natural and human-made stress on the Gulf.
The Open Ocean Trustee Implementation Group just released a new plan to restore the Gulf’s marine wildlife like tuna, red snapper, sea turtles, deep-sea corals and whales. The Trustees have invited the public to submit comments and suggestions. Join us and tell the Open Ocean Trustees you support efforts to protect marine wildlife and the deep waters of the Gulf.
