News Release: Gulf of Mexico Faces Critical Time: Regional Alliance Key to Resilient Future

The Gulf of Mexico Alliance met last month with over 400 participants from local, state and federal government agencies, and businesses and non-profit organizations, to discuss oil spill response and recovery, as well as implementation of the Governor’s Action Plan for Healthy & Resilient Coasts. Even though the impacts of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill disaster may take years to be fully realized, the Alliance is pressing ahead and galvanizing its diverse partnerships to further on the ground progress toward enhancing the environmental and economic health of the Gulf.
