This month we are recognizing Dr. Jim Pahl. He’s a senior Coastal Resource Scientist with the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority.

A solid supporter of the Alliance for years, Jim continues to be integral to our partnership. He is the Habitat Resources Team chair and leads the Comprehensive Conservation, Restoration, and Resilience Planning Cross-Team. His support includes countless hours organizing and leading calls and virtual webinars to plan for the next Governors’ Action Plan IV (APIV).

Jim’s commitment to GOMA has led to many on-the-ground projects to restore habitat, implement living shoreline alternatives, support regional sediment management, and promote understanding of sea level rise and storm surge modeling.
