Contact the Habitat Conservation Division - Southeast

Southeast Region - Habitat Conservation Division

Habitat conservation activities in the Southeast Region are principally achieved through the efforts of Habitat Conservation Division personnel stationed at offices located strategically throughout the Region.  The Division is organized to correspond to the areas under management by the three regional fishery management councils in the southeast United States - Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean.

By decentralizing and collocating staff with research, academic, and natural resource management partners, the Division directly interacts with constituents allowing us to implement the NOAA Fisheries habitat protection program in the southeastern United States effectively and efficiently.

 

Who Should You Contact?

It is usually best to call the office in your state if you have a question about a specific project or area in the Southeast Region.

If you have a question about a letter from us regarding a project or activity, the closing paragraph of the letter should include contact information for the Habitat Conservation Division staff person below most familiar with that project or activity.
