The Alliance's Wildlife & Fisheries Team recently contracted with Abt Associates to produce the guidebook, Understanding Nekton Use of Estuarine Habitats in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. This guidebook targets habitat-specific nekton use and recovery to help natural resource managers plan, implement, and evaluate habitat restoration and protection projects. Work supported could include setting restoration goals, designing projects, monitoring, and communicating project benefits.
Recognizing that coastal communities are at risk to natural, economic, and technological disasters, the Gulf of Mexico Alliance (Alliance) provided small grants for communities through a series of different funding opportunities. Documenting the assistance, the recently-published Community Impacts Report summarizes the work supported by the Alliance and its partners across the Gulf of Mexico.
