Gulf Restoration Assets and Resources


“We cannot allow the hard lessons learned from the BP Deepwater Horizon tragedy to be forgotten."



“We cannot allow the hard lessons learned from the BP Deepwater Horizon tragedy to be forgotten. Risky offshore drilling that only profits a company and imperils lives and livelihoods is not history we want repeated in the Gulf. We are here to fight for a healthy ocean because it means thriving marine wildlife, prosperous communities and a better planet for us all.” Janis Searles Jones, Chief Executive Officer

“Beyond the early restoration projects chosen through the Natural Resource Damage Assessment process to address impacts from the oil disaster, there must also be follow-through on the national commitment to address decades of degradation from sources such as coastal erosion, overfishing and excessive nutrient runoff that has produced a dead zone of depleted oxygen.” Chris Dorsett, Vice President, Conservation

”The challenge facing restoration and research programs is deciding which science investments will provide the most insight into the health and recovery of the Gulf ecosystem. Simply put, we need to monitor what matters.” Chris Robbins, Senior Manager, Science Initiatives
